Malawi Broadcasting Corporation (MBC) Director General Aubrey Sumbuleta has admitted that the public broadcaster did not give its best to Malawians in the past years.

Sumbuleta made the admission yesterday at MBC Television in the commercial city of Blantyre during familiarization tour by the newly appointed Minister of Information Gospel Kazako.

When addressing members of staff of the corporation, Kazako said the state funded broadcaster has lost its glory for being involved in active politics as it was serving the interest of the previous administration Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) and not Malawians.

According to Kazako, MBC was being used as a political tool for propaganda by the former ruling party, describing the corporation as a bad boy who needs to mend his ways and get back on track.

He further expressed concern of how others got themselves working at the corporation considering that they lack skills and qualifications.

In his remarks, Sumbuleta admitted that the corporation has not done a good job in some respects and pledged never to repeat the past mistakes.

However, Kazako has promised that other employees at MBC will be casualties in the course of cleaning the public broadcaster.
