Malawi Broadcasting Corporation has been officially unveiled as the official broadcaster of the forthcoming Region 5 Youth Games to be held in December.
At a signing ceremony between the Local Organizing Committee and MBC, Chairperson for the Local Organizing Committee, Dennis Mombera, said the agreement is a demonstration of confidence that MBC should create the needed hype ahead of the games, and deliver to the expected standard during the broadcast of the games.
“We have 56 days before the commencement of the games, let’s start creating the hype now. Let’s keep Malawians informed,” Mombera said.
Mombera said so far the Local Organizing Committee is impressed with the content that MBC is broadcasting ahead of the games.
For his part, the Director General of Malawi Broadcasting Corporation, George Kasakula, said the Corporation is geared for the task.
“Broadcasting the Region 5 Youth Games is a chance for MBC to prove to Malawians that it is a leader in broadcasting…We will do our best because this falls within our strategic direction of promoting sports apart from development programming, entertainment and news, ” said Kasakula.
The Region 5 games are scheduled to run from 2 – 11 December 2022.
This is the first time Malawi is hosting the Region 5 games.
