She said that Ms Mupwaya on the other hand brings to the board over 28 years of experience in Management.

Ms Mapoma said Ms Mupwaya is an expert in corporate governance and human resource management.

“We are optimistic that both Mr Chuula and Ms Mupwaya’s experience and accomplishments will lead to transformation at the IBA in line with modern trends in the broadcasting sector,” she said
