ZBC cur­rent af­fairs team dis­ap­points

The Sunday Mail (Zimbabwe) - - COMMENT -

I AM one of those peo­ple who is fail­ing to raise United States dol­lars to pay for satel­lite tele­vi­sion ac­cess.

I be­lieve I am not the only one and there are sev­eral thou­sands in my sit­u­a­tion.

With such a sit­u­a­tion, I turn to our lo­cal broad­caster ZBC for in­for­ma­tion and en­ter­tain­ment.

I will not waste time to dis­cuss about the qual­ity of con­tent on ZBC, but just raise my con­cern with their cur­rent af­fairs pro­gram­ming.

Re­cently we had the He­roes and De­fence Forces Day as well as Pres­i­dent Mnan­gagwa’s in­au­gu­ra­tion that was screened live.

It is an­noy­ing to see Wadzanai Mhombera and his col­league Ad­mire Mhungu on our screens at the ex­pense of what is go­ing on in the arena.

They should try to make their com- ments in the back­ground and let the view­ers have a feel of the pro­ceed­ings un­in­ter­rupted.

We ex­pect the same with the live cov­er­age of the burial of he­roes and hero­ines. There is no need to show us the full in­ter­views with those min­is­ters.

We are now ex­pect­ing live par­lia­men­tary cov­er­age ev­ery Wed­nes­day and the pre­vi­ous ten­dency of di­vert­ing at­ten­tion to the pre­sen­ter when­ever he feels pro­ceed­ings are hot in the House should stop forth­with. We re­ally need to sup­port ZBC, but at times munoita chifinhu.

It is time you re­alise you are wast­ing time cen­sor­ing even the small­est things be­cause there are now plenty of live Face­book feeds on the same events.

I love my ZBC Head­lands.
