Radio station suspends programmes

MASERU – Controversial private radio station Thaha-Khube FM has over the last two weeks not been running its programmes.
The station has only been playing music continuously.
The radio station’s manager, Tebello “Booster” Sepoqoane, said the suspension has nothing to do with its controversial programmes but is because the station is going through a major revamp.
“We are installing new machines and the whole setting of the radio station hence the suspension of programmes,” Sepoqoane said.
He said the revamp will include rebranding and the hiring of new staff that is already under training.
“We are starting the (whole operation) afresh. We will have new programmes and in case where we continue with old shows we are working on how best they can run,” Sepoqoane said.
He said a new management to run the station will also be put in place.

Sephoqoane said they initially hoped the changes would take just two weeks only to realise they needed more time.
“Even the letter we sent to the Lesotho Communication Authority indicated that we will suspend our programmes for two weeks but we are ready to go back to them and communicate the delay,” Sepoqoane said.

Sepoqoane said he could not say more on how the management will change and whether the name of the radio station will also change.
Critics have accused Thaha-Khube FM of openly pushing a biased agenda in favour of political parties aligned to former Prime Minister Pakalitha Mosisili’s camp.
The radio station denies the charge.
