According to the statement, signed by Macra’s chairperson Martha Kwataine and director general Charles Nsaliwa, Mulhakho Radio got the licence in December 2011. The radio later applied and was granted a six-month extension of roll out period from August 2012 to January 2013, but still failed to roll out and asked for a further eight-month extension from January to August 2013.
