ZNBC, MUVI urged to enforce television rating system

Zambia National Broadcasting Corporation (ZNBC) and MUVI Television has been asked by a child advocate to enforce television programme rating system that shows age restrictions.

“I have not come across a programme on ZNBC or MUVI which clearly states that age limit. This needs to come to an end. A guide should be given as to what age is suitable for what programmes televised on the respective television channels here in Zambia,” said Fatima Chibamba, facilitator at the Latkings Outreach Program, a project sponsored by Save the Children.

“Movies are a great form of family entertainment but not every movie is suitable for every member of the family including children, hence the need for our local television channels to enforce the rating systems,” added Chibamba.
