In a statement, the chairperson of the ZBC Board, Father Gibson Munyoro, said the reversal was done because the changes made had not been approved by the Board.

“The Board has taken this decision because the announced reassignment of the managers was done without prior consultation or the advice and approval of the Board itself.

Accordingly, any movements or changes to take place within the national broadcaster shall be presented to the Board for consideration and strategic discernment before being announced and effected,” he said.

The acting Group CEO, Mr Allan Chiweshe, on Thursday announced through a notice that General Manager News and Current Affairs Tazzen Mandizvidza had been re-assigned to General Manager TV Services, Head News and Current Affairs Josephine Zulu had been moved to Head Radio Services, where she was going to swap roles with Mr Chris Chivinge.
