PRESS STATEMENT

BROADCASTING AUTHORITY OF ZIMBABWE

The Broadcasting Authority of Zimbabwe wishes to advise the public that the Authority has not issued any licence for the provision of Kwese TV In Zimbabwe. This follows media reports suggesting that Kwese was now officially in Zimbabwe and did not need a licence after all. In terms of the Broadcasting Services Act [Chapter 1206J, no person shall provide a broadcasting service in Zimbabwe other than in accordance with a licence issued by the Broadcasting Authority of Zimbabwe. T. Content Distribution licence issued to Dr. Dish, which was specific to the provision of the My TV Africa Service, as declared by Dr. Dish in its application and stated in the terms and conditions of the licence, was cancelled by the Authority for failure by Dr. Dish to provide the My TV Africa service, The Broadcasting Authority of Zimbabwe therefore wishes to advise the public not to invest in a service that cannot be provided without a licence and warns anyone who may contemplate providing an unlicensed broadcasting service to acquaint themselves with the course of action that the Authority is bound to take, in terms of the law.
