‘ZBC , Fires Almost Entire Mgnt Team, News Raders, Journalists & All Internal Security .’

STATE broadcaster, the Zimbabwe Broadcasting Corporation on Saturday reportedly fired almost the entire management team, news readers, journalists and all internal security personnel.

The engineering department was also reported to have been cleaned up in the job carnage.

Other reports however said only between 50 and 100 workers had been fired and that letters of dismissal were still being dished out late last night.

Some of the fired employees who requested anonymity told The Standard last night that they expected to be called back for re-engagement on new temporary contracts.Among those reportedly fired yesterday included a top news manager Chris Chivinge, news readers Sonangani Ncube and

Elizabeth Chengeta, Power FM DJ Tinashe Chiname, producer Dorothy Chidzawo, engineer David Chinyamunyamu and an administration staffer Emma Shamuyarira.

Like several other media organisations and companies, ZBC last week reportedly sent home about 400 workers on three months’ notice.

ZBC spokesperson Gladman Bandama could not be reached for comment last night as his phone was not reachable.
