...Ba­boons take YA FM break­fast show off air

Daily Trust - - INTERNATIONAL -

Ba­boons have briefly forced a ra­dio sta­tion off air in Zim­babwe af­ter ap­par­ently eat­ing the sta­tion’s trans­mis­sion ca­bles.

YA FM ra­dio sta­tion head Mun­yaradzi Hweng­were said he first thought the show had gone off air due to a power cut, the Chron­i­cle news­pa­per re­ports.

How­ever, it turned out that ba­boons had chewed through the sta­tion’s fi­bre op­tic ca­bles in a moun­tain­ous area near the cen­tral town of Zvisha­vane.

YA FM launched last week­end. Mr Hweng­were said, adding that the break­fast show re­mained off air for an hour.
