Diamond Platinumz radio station Wasafi FM has been banned for 7 days over foul language. The ban kicks off on September 12, because Wasafi FM presenters continued airing programmes with abusive language and violating communications regulations.
It is alleged by the authority that the offence was committed on August 1, between 8 pm and 5pm and on August 4, between 10am and 12 pm on programmes: The switch and Mashamsamu respectively, where the presenters aired content heavy with abusive language which is contrary to licensing regulations.
TCRA has ordered the station to apologize to the public today, for violating broadcasting regulations through its Mashamsham and The Switch programs.” Said Tanzania Updates.
The ban on Wasafi FM follows that of Clouds FM and TV which were banned for the same reasons earlier this year.
