Zodiak the host of Zodiak TV, radio and online publication has distanced itself from a Facebook page bearing its name that has already posted several fake stories which Fake Watch Africa came across.


There is a story alleging that Malawi Electoral Commission (MEC) chairperson Jane Ansah has been detained in South Africa and another one says the US President Donald Trump has ordered the CIA and Interpol to investigate allegations of terror-coup in Malawi. The third one says President Mutharika has been arrested by US officers in Likoma.

But Zodiak Online editor Winston Mwale said the posts are not from Zodiak adding that the pages having these fake posts look different from the genuine Zodiak Online page.

“The outlook of the pages are different and if you look at the number of followers, the genuine Zodiak Online page has about 394,000 followers while that fake page which has posted about Jane Ansah being detained only has 10,000 followers,” he explained.
