Project on Hold During Corona Virus

To date, Zambia's confirmed corona virus cases have been low with around 1,400 at the time of writing. Quarantines have been put into place, masks are mandatory and borders are closed. The current death toll is 11, with 45,000 people tested.  Bars and restaurants remain closed. 

Radio has been the primary communication channel that people have turned to for accurate information. Both are large projects, this one with COMACO and the other with the National Food and Nutrtion Commission are using our radios and Lifeplayer MP3s to listen to Covid-19 messaging.

However, our partners at COMACO have curtailed their operations to only essential services.  New listener group formation is on hold at the moment, so we are unable to report. The initiative is on hold at present, although Farm Talk radio programmes are still broadcasting. 

On another matter, Zambia’s Health Minister Chitalu Chilufya has been arrested on allegations of corruption.

The 47-year-old doctor and politician was detained by the police following an investigation by the country’s Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC).  "Dr Chitalu Chilufya has been charged with four counts of being in possession of property reasonably suspected to be proceeds of crime,” ACC spokesperson Jonathan Siame said.  He is suspected of diverting PPE equipment and related items for the purposed of protecting Zambians against the virus.
