                   MALAWI COMMUNICATIONS REGULATORY AUTHORITY

                          REVOCATION OF L1MBE MUSLIM JAMAAT FM RADIO LICENCE


                                   (Pursuant to Section 24.1 (iv) of LMJ FM Radio Licence )


     The Malawi Communications Regulatory Authority hereby revokes a Community of Interest Sound Broadcasting
Licence that was awarded to LMJ FM for a period running from 4th April, 2014, to 4th April 2021.

     According to Section 29.1 of LMJ FM Licence, it stipulates that the radio was to roll-out its broadcasting services in
Malawi within eight (8) months from the Effective Date of their Licence i.e. 4th April 2014.

     Clause 29.2 of their licence stipulates that MACRA would revoke the Licence if LMJ FM failed to roll-out and provide
broadcasting services by the expiry of the eight (8) months.

     MACRA has conducted several teclmical and roll out audits and noted that the station has failed to roll out within the
agreed period.

     MACRA therefore invokes its powers under sections 24.1 (iv) and 29.2 of the LMJ FM Licence and HEREBY revokes
LMJ FM Licence effective 4th March, 2016.
