The Ministry of Information has extended a ban on call-in programs at Radio Lyambai in the western province of Mongu. On November 30, 2007, the ministry’s director of press and planning, Juliana Mwila, sent a letter to the station banning its call-in programs and calling them “a platform for confrontation, controversies, and a channel of insults and misinformation.” The ministry sent another letter to the station in January 2008 stating that the ban will continue indefinitely, according to the station’s deputy manager, Muyumbana Nyambe.
