24 Hrs After Dismissing 282 Employees, More Heads Roll At Zimbabwe Broadcasting Corporation (ZBC)

More heads reportedly rolled at the Zimbabwe Broadcasting Corporation (ZBC) yesterday with news bulletins manager John Gambanga and Jacob Phiri being shown the exit door 24 hours after the State broadcaster terminated contracts for 282 employees citing viability problems.

Sources at ZBC said the pair was fired as part of the broadcaster’s streamlining exercise which has seen Tazzen Mandizvidza being appointed general manager, while Chris Chivinge was appointed editor-in-chief.

ZBC spokesperson Gladman Bandama could neither confirm nor deny the developments saying the rationalization process was an on-going exercise. Source: newsday
