Epilogue? Malawi’s Galaxy radio in death throes after Mutharika’s demise

LILONGWE--Galaxy radio, set up by late president Bingu wa Mutharika, risks the wrath of regulator Malawi Communications Regulatory Authority after being off air for more than 48 hours.

The radio, the only satellite transmitted station, has quickly moved from being a well-paying organisation to one where employees are unpaid.

The radio went off air two days ago after a South African company which provided satellite transmission couldn’t carry its signal because unpaid fees amounting to K10 million.
Meanwhile, Galaxy employees have stopped reporting for duties after not getting paid their August salaries.

Station Manager Zilani Gondwe told the workers last Friday there would delay until further notice.

The station is run by the late president’s daughter, Duwa, and only son Madalitso.
