Yesterday’s news reported that Malawians could not to watch first 5 World Cup games. Multichoice Malawi, a sole DStv provider, failed to connect subscribers to sport channels that are showing the global sporting event, even though they paid the fees.

There was a swamp of angry people at their Lilongwe offices who shouted and exchanged words with the DStv providers.

After long queues last week whereby customers went to buy satellite dishes, they were back as of Saturday complaining that’s they are failing to watch the games.

“This is very bad; I have missed the grand opening of the World Cup which is very special to us as Africans since it is the first to be played on our own soil. The DStv providers could have tried their best to make sure that this never happens,” said Charles Phiri, who spent almost the whole day at Multichoice Malawi offices.

“The bad thing is that instead of playing the caring parent at this time when all of us are frustrated, some of the marking officials are shouting at us for lacking knowledge in setting the dishes. This is very poor customer relations, we deserve better than this,” chipped in Alex Manda of Lilongwe
