The Minister also inaugurated seven brand new vehicles which the public broadcaster has procured using its own resources.

While applauding MBC for the initiatives, Mussa appealed for personel handling both the vehicles and studios to jealously guard them.

“MBC has set the pace that it is actually doable for a parastatal to be managing its resources. This is coming from a background where MBC has been posting loses year-in-year- out. We are even looking forward to a time where MBC would be remitting dividends to government,” said Mussa.

Mussa further committed to make sure that MBC is operating without huddles.

According to MBC Director General Aubrey Sumbuleta, the studios are those that were gutted down by fire in the year 2000.

“And we have been operating from makeshift studios for the past 17 years,” said Sumbuleta.
