It seems even radio stations are not safe from the wrath of the novel coronavirus. The filming of various TV shows has been halted due to cast members testing positive for the virus. Kaya FM has also joined the growing list of places temporarily closed because of the pandemic.
In a press statement, the broadcaster said that the 97 employees have been informed and they are awaiting test results. The building used by Kaya FM will be temporarily closed while it undergoes cleaning and sanitising.
Systems have been put in place to ensure that the show goes on. The station will broadcast remotely until further notice.
Kaya FM MD Greg Maloka said:
"The Kaya FM family is our number one priority; we will get through this together as a company and as a society at large"
