By BBN Staff: Last week, BBN reported (See story here: https://www.breakingbelizenews.com/2018/05/31/btl-pulls-plug-on-advertising-with-the-kremandala-empire/ ) that Belize Telemedia Limited (BTL) pulled the plug on all advertisements with KREM Radio, KREM TV, and The Amandala Newspaper.
This morning, KREM’s Mose Hyde confirmed that BTL has not been advertising with KREM Radio, KREM TV and The Amandala for over three (3) weeks now. Hyde said in his ‘Wake Up Belize’ (WUB) talk show that Belizean leaders reign with maliciousness and the reason for pulling the plug is out of pure malice against KREMANDALA.
Hyde argued that it is the people of Belize and “not BelChina or the UDP that is paying the bill for BTL”. The bill for BTL’s acquisition has already surpassed $600 million and with interest, legal fees and lawsuits, may approach one (1) billion dollars.
“Apparently, BTL is the property of the UDP, according to members of Cabinet,” Hyde said. Hyde pinpointed to members of Cabinet and shareholders of BTL that BTL advertises to all Belizeans not only to the UDPs.
Furthermore, Hyde reminded Belizeans and Digicel users that BTL pulling their advertisements from KREMANDALA means that Belizean viewers of KREM and readers of The Amandala Newspaper mean nothing to the government.
“If Faber, Saldivar and the UDP Ministers were going into their pockets to pay back for BTL, then they can do whatever they want, so they are not the owners. PUP, UDP, and non-partisan people are the ones who have to pay back for it,” Hyde explained.
Hyde declared instead of using their ‘genius brain’ to figure out how to grow the country’s economy, our leaders decide to focus their energy on maliciousness and vetting out punishment.
“It is an hour of your finest malice…. using what belongs to the people of Belize to deliver your victimization and punishment,” Hyde concluded.
