Kabwe-based Power FM has withdrawn the case against eight Patriotic Front cadres who were arrested for storming their studio, disrupting  a live programme that featured opposition National Democratic Congress leader Chishimba Kambwili.

The eight accused persons appeared before the Kabwe Magistrate Court for plea yesterday morning but Station Manager, David Mutumwenu, told the Court that the media house had decided to withdraw the case.

Mutumwenu explained that the decision to discontinue the case was arrived at after realising the huge number of people involved and the repercussions thereof, if they are jailed.

Police in Chipata had also arrested PF cadres who threatened journalists at Radio Maria but the case was withdrawn by the radio station before it could even get to court.
