By Bright Chikele:
The Independent Broadcasting Authority (IBA) says it has no powers to act upon complaints of unfair coverage being made against the public broadcaster ZNBC.
.
IBA Director General Josephine Mapoma told QTV that ZNBC is not licensed by the IBA.
.
Mapoma explains that the IBA is only mandated to regulate broadcasting media houses it issues licenses to.
.
She says the IBA can therefore only make an appeal to ZNBC to give equitable coverage to all political parties taking part in the August general election.
.
Mapoma has also encouraged aggrieved political parties to complain directly to ZNBC if they find the coverage by the public broadcaster to unfair or biased.
