Last month, the Head of Kwesé Zimbabwe, Dorothy Zimuto adviced that ZBC-ZTV1 was going to be available on Kwesé TV. And indeed, ZBC-TV has now finally come on Board on Kwesé TV as it is a requirement of Zimbabwean law that every licensed service carries the national broadcaster.

Otherwise, ZBC had became a sad reality of broadcasting in the world where everything is done in a poor fashion, with only Zanu PF as the major stakeholder.

Jonathan Moyo was Minister of Information and Publicity from 2000 to 2005. During that time he was known for effecting some radical modifications at ZBC. He led the same ministry again from 2013 to 2015. Whatever things he did, or did not do, contributed to the state that ZBC-TV is in today and should take responsibility.
