Brian Banda: Times is partisan

In a leaked audio Banda is heard speaking to an unidentified person confirming his suspension. However unlike the reasons that have been circulated, Banda says that his suspension is because he was not hitting at the DPP a lot.

‘There are people there who wanted me to hit a lot at the DPP so they suspended me,’ he said to the other person.

‘It is not Mr. Chikadya (the managing director) but some bosses who are so MCP are the ones who made my suspension possible,’ complained Banda.

Banda claims that an interview he had with minister of information Nicolas Dausi has been the reason for his suspension.

However another leaked audio has claimed that Banda was suspended for corruption.

  1. wausiru Brian Banda. There’s no way tv presenter kumangopanga critisize one party. He has to take a good example of Maganizo Mazeze of Zodiak. Samayang’ana kuti uyu ndi wa Rulling Party or Opposition Party. amafunsa mafunso poyenera kufunsa and kukamba ma weaknesses awo. I like Maganizo Mazeze that this goat Banda. mxiiieew chimutu chake chachikulu chija.

  4. I hope this time he will see nsonda for apology and special elderly blessing. I remember nsonda asked him…koma mulimbako kumeneko? Repent young man

  5. Brian Is A Good Journalist Bt I Cant Give Him 100%.He Is A Man Born With Some Weaknesses So He Deserves Suspension If He Did Not Follow Company Rules.

  6. Ambiri a inu amene mukukamba zonyoza apa u dnt knw even what it takes to b a journalst. To say the truth,Brian brings true facts of zochitika za mdziko muno. I like the way how he present chichewa chake…..even Dausi mukumukambayo knws dat Brian ndi No.1

  7. Brian is a best radio and TV replesenter that would withdrow many viewers from Times if he may leave the group. am telling u many people love times coz of him

  8. Amaoneka Brian ndi Kasakula kuti sizinali za ntchito (professional journalists)komano kusangalatsa omwe akuwapatsa ndalama opposition leaders kuti adzinyoza State president ndi boma lake lero taonani ayaluka chinsalu cha mkachisi chang’ambika zonse pa mbalambanda.

  9. Ever since I started listening to Brian banda’s take on programs mainly the political one, I suspected a lot of malpractices on his part. He is not even a good journalist but rather a corrupt political diehard of failures. DPP is not 100% good we know but Brian wazidya ndalama zotsutsira chonsecho kudzudzula boma iye akupanga zomwezo. Uyuyu ndi mbava yoposa wamfuti, wosocheretsa anthu mudzina la ufulu wa ma radio komanso atolankhani

  10. tilibe naye dilu angobwera ku front politics ameneyu tizamuziwe bwino ngati munthu wandale not hiding behind journalism career to achieve his political agendas. Please kindly come out Mr B Banda.

  11. Before We Point Fingers To Mr Brian Banda For Politicising His Radio & Tv Programes We Should Be Noted That; Malawi Is One Of The Countries In Africa Which Is Run By Politicians And Everything Is Always Attached To Politics.Yes Politics In Many Institutions Including In Radio And Tv Station/programmes Aswel.I Therefore Suggest That Its Proper And Wise If We Can Advise Him On What Exactly To Do When He Returns To His Normal Duties After Suspetion eg- “He Should Know How To Advise Not To Criticise The Current Regime And Respect Since Everyone Has Upps And Downs So We Need To Uplift Not To Criticise” Rather To Point Him Fingers Due To His Suspention Yet Previously You Had Not Spoken Anything.Am Saying This Because The Very Same People Who Has Been Supporting Brian’s Political Radio Programmes They Are The Very Same People Today Who Are Pointing Fingers To Him Saying That He Is Fond Of Politicising Programes Aswel Because He Has Been Suspended.

  12. Brian anali bwino ali ku capital FM koma pano popanga program amachita kuonetseratu kuti ali against Dpp and government! What kind of a reporter is he??

  13. Ifeel Brian was born a journalist! He deserves to be cautioned not suspension Times will regret losing him! Amalawi timadana ndi chilungamo his suspension is political for sure but Ilike him he ask questions without limitations he is in the top five when we talk of journalism at its best talk of Brian, Pilirani, Maganizo just to mention afew.Tizimveranso ma radio ena monga BBC ndi ena tiphunzire zambiri!

    • So u think malawi is a corrupt free country?u know wat the problem is of being exposed but if he could have not be exposed we could ave saiying is innocent.so no one is perfect in those so called instution even the bosses themselves are so corrupt

  14. The way you were reporting made us know that something bad was following you. Too much politics in you. You were hitting DPP hard usamatinyengepo APA ungoti sunaphule kanthu coz kwao kwa ndale ndiye DPP

  15. Every institution has its own rules and regulations.
    What we are hearing or browsing is just HEAR SAY.
    The truth will be exposed as the HOT CURRENT JOURNEY Continues.

  16. People hate the truth. That’s unprofessional to the management who are guided by uncivilized politicians, your the best, they have Taken pilirani Phiri, timpunza Mwsnsambo Teleza Just to hide the truth information from the nation

  17. This is a blue lie. Banda and Kasakula have not been suspended. Brian has gone for his annual leave which is normal in every institution. And I believe he will cut his holiday just to come and clear this lie. It’s just that the DPP and its cadets are afraid of these two guys. I believe Molande is behind this propaganda just as he has done with Kachama.

  18. Life is useless although your job brings food on the table, time will tell and there is always next time in every life.I love you Brian from the time you were in capital radio.Munthu sayipa mchewa adatero you r still a great man.Dont worry Brian you r not the first or the last. All the best in your life Mr Brian Banda.

  19. Ameneuja Amaonekeratu Kuti Ndi Wa Mcp.Amapanga Zomwe Munamuuza Kuti Azinyazitsa Mtsogoleri Pa Chilichonse Ngakhale Chabwino .Nanga Wataninso Nanga? Kkkk Brian Udziwe Kuti “dziko Sasenza Koma Timangokankha”

  20. Why I Lov Brian Banda,he Couldnt Suport Gvt On Stupid Thngs,honesty,feares To Those In Authority,hot Current Progrm Nd Deal Heavy And He Couldnt Crap Hands The Gvt Pomwesa Bibi Area18 Residents! Kma Uyu Nd Best Ever Jaunalst In As Far As Political Coverage Is Concerndd

  21. Achitosi ndi Amithi kumeneko kuzifeeler kuti inu ndiye muli ndi mapepala anzanuwo alibe……? Chili kunzakotu kumakumbukira ndi dziko ili. Tinene kuti inu ndi a tolankhani oti muli clean……? Tizikusatirani tione nanu mmene mulili…….

  22. This is from their family, the bible says,(respect your leader whether he is gud or bad) it continues what a person can beneft if he/she gains everything but losses his/her life?

  23. Any journalist who allows politicians to use him/her has killed his/ her career!
    Akakuchotsani ntchito mukaipezaso kuti poti u have shown the people that u are weak and easly lured with stupid fake things. Politicians are good at using people to get what they want, when its done amangokutaya paliponse. Watchout!!!!

    • A Brian, A Nsonda Anakufunsani Kuti “a Brian Koma Mulimba Ku Times ko?” Inunso Mutawafunsa Kuti “mulimba Ku Dpp?” Bwanji Manyazi? Kang’oma Koliritsa Sikachedwa Kumg’ambika. Wasala Mzako Uja Amapanga Ngati APM Ali Naye Udani Wa Personal

  24. Ndiye ndasiya kuonera times, Brian was my man, akutokota kwambiri apa ndi a DPP amawavetsa kuwawa ofuna kupembezedwa ngati mbc

  25. CNN,Fox,NBC,AL JAZZEERA their journalist use the same methods,when they employ a journalist they do hv staff trainings in order to orient them what the media house want to achieve,i.e,to spread someone’s propaganda, if they go off-track,they are sacked imediately,here we hv ZBS,MBC,TIMES,RADIO ISLAM,MARIA,Y fm,NKHOMA,ABC,LIVING WATERS,NKHOTAKOTA COMMUNITY,ETC, their staff can not work the same since they hv different ambition,so if brian has been shown the exit door,it is normal,he can be picked by other media houses and he will start reporting agaisnt the other,eg,MBC to MCP,survive of the hittest.

  26. Brian let me tell u, u were a bad radio presenter i have ever listened to.You lost ur track in terms of how u were presenting ur programme.For example,’The hot current programme’, the title of the programme was good but now how u were presenting with ur friend George eeesh! I stopped listening to Times Tv.If i may ask why were u always targeting the ruling government in ur programme? What bored me much was, when u were presenting ur programme instead of u being neutral as a journalist u were taking part hitting more to the president as well as the ruling party. As a journalist u know what u were supposed to do professionally but u did not.What u chose was to please ur bosses, see now today how those bosses have done to u.There is nothing which u have gained by being unprofessional to ur duties.This is a bad reputation to ur profession.Mark my words if u will not learn something from the letter of suspension which u have been served u’ll end up a bad presenter forever !!

  28. in case sm of u dont knw, Times fires any journalist who seems 2 be linient 2 dpp in fact he is not the first person. find out. he used 2 be a gud reporter in around 2004, but when politicians started using him, he ceased 2 be 1.

  29. I give 100% Correct to those who has suspended brian banda my message to times group ndiwa kuti just suck him uyo simutolankhani koma wandale ndiye ngati mkufuna kuti kampani yanu yipite patsogolo Brian achoke

  30. Brian u r the best radio representer malawi had ever had,tikamanvera ma pologalamu ako timadziwa kuti tinva zoona zonkha zonkha sima manyaka aku mbc obisa chilungamo posamala ntchito.Dont worry mr #Banda God is there 4 u.Ngati akutsekelani nkhoma Mulungu atsegula windo osadanda madala

  31. This is bias if it’s really true. The media houses please give the news as it is. When you speak of corruption to the government, clean yourself first. After all suspension is not dismissal

  32. Brian is can be good for him if he could join politics rather than being journalist. He is into politics too much and he don’t deserve to be journalist. He always personalise his report. I don’t know him personally but looking at what he has been reporting I discovered that and his report is attack which meant to benefit his personal life not for the nation.

  33. Hahahahhahahaha i rest my case! I knew that program and stupid Banda has something against my beloved party DPP. I couldn’t think who else it was though, i thought its PP, but now that i know that MCP is also involved, it makes a lot sense. Now my theory is that, Brian Banda was paid by the TIMES organisation as in salary. And TIMES was fueled up by those two opposition parties mentioned above, by me of course. So when Banda saw that there’s more money injected into the TIMES organisation in the name of the program he is hosting, only to find that they’re paying him peanuts, he then decided to go easy on the ruling party, my DPP that is. So that’s when the TIMES organisation felt like Banda was getting money from DPP in order for him to go easy on them. And that’s where the accusation of him being corrupt came about. Well i wouldn’t be surprised if he was getting some ching ching from the DPP though because MBUZI IMADYERA POMWE AYIMANGILIRA! Besides its the other parties that started to play dirty by using TIMESTV, so DPP came to party and play even dirtier and like always, we came up tops or should i say winners. To all the opposition parties, please don’t start a war you can not finish. Look now even TIMES organisation is in trouble, simply because they got involved with losers. MUISOVA!
