Chairman of MultiChoice Zambia Dr John Mulwila SC presents a present to the out-going Director General of Zambia National Broadcasting Corporation (ZNBC) Chibamba Kanyama at his farewell cocktail party hosted at Lusaka’s Pamodzi Hotel as MultiChoice acting public relations manager Mumbi Mutale looks on.

Out-going Zambia National Broadcasting Corporation (ZNBC) Chibamba Kanyama says during his 2-year tenure of Office, the public broadcaster doubled its revenue base and television levies to sustain the institution.

Mr. Chibamba says TV levies increased from K800,000 to K1.4 million contrary to general public assertions that the Corporation totally depended on government.

He however said that ZNBC requires massive re-capitalization in fixed and working capital to ensure that the migration process is satisfactorily addressed to the aspirations of the Zambian people.

ZANIS reports that the outgoing ZNBC Director General said this during a farewell party held in his hounour by the Corporation’s management at the mass media complex cafeteria, last night.

He urged ZNBC workers to work professionally without undue ‘external’ pressure if the corporation was to tick.

On his proposed 3-year strategic plan, Mr. Kanyama said he aims to create systems and build capacity at institutions he works for.

He claimed that he never sacked any employee under his rule but he managed to recall some of the former employees that were allegedly fired.

“Finally, to all ZNBC stakeholders, particularly members of the public, that gave me encouragement to provide leadership at the Corporation.

“ I do hope that the public will continue to render support to my successor, Mr. Maduma and ZNBC at large,” he said.

And ZNBC Board Chairman John Mulwila appealed to Mr. Kanyama to always avail himself whenever his expertise are needed by ZNBC.

Dr. Mulwila regretted that the Corporation would miss the services of Mr. Kanyama but quickly implored on the new management to follow the outgoing ZNBC management style.

He advised the incoming ZNBC DG Kenneth Maduma to take the corporation to the next level from from where Mr. Kanyama has left.

On his part, in coming ZNBC Acting Director General Mr. Muduma implored ZNBC workers to support him if the corporation was to tick.

And passing a vote of thanks, Sipo Sibutu appealed to ZNBC employees to emulate Mr. Kanyama’s managerial skills.

Mr. Sibutu implored the in-coming ZNBC Boss Mr. Muduma to continue from where Mr. Kanyama left.

The cocktail party was attended by other ZNBC Board Members among them Mr. Faides Katebe, senior ZNBC directors and government officials and ZNBC employees.

  1. In all honesty how can you expect the likes of Muduma (or Ben Kangwa) who we used to watch on TV 30 years ago to oversee the migration process transform from analogue to the digital age.

    • Boss, it is called continuing professional development (CPD). Most professions (particularly those that go with a practicing licence) require that you keep abreast of developments because what you where given lectures in at university or college is outdated within 5 years of the date you graduate.

      Let us no discriminate against our elder brothers and sisters.
      One day, if you do not die of misadventure or ignorance, you will be old too.

    • Imwe naimwe. Why would you pray for zambia just bwcause someone has made a mistake in writing when he was actually doing it in a language that is foreign to him. Instead cry when so many zambians cant speak or even write in their native tongue. That is a tragedy we should be crying about. Noti ifisungu.

  2. Well done Chibamba! You led selflessly and by example! But you also had to tread on a tight and dangerous path not to awaken and upset the sleeping dinasours!! All the same – thanks for your services and good luck for the future boy!
    What a lucky escape for you which in may ways looks like “Jail Break”. Zambia will miss you. So come back later and rescue our country from Kabimba and Geriatrics Ukwa and Gay Scott! Go well boy, go!

  3. Chibamba is a Greatest guy. God bless u my Tonga Bull wherever u are heading to.

    Keep it up. Work without a any partiality as u always do here in your Motherland Zambia.

  4. The truth of the matter remains the same ie totally depended on govt help.There has never been a month they have paid salaries without govt intervention.Even if revenue was doubled,the corporation failed to sustain itself and so where is success ?

  5. “….Presents a present”: Grammatically speaking, there is NOTHING wrong with the sentence. The first word is used as a verb and then the second as a noun. The sentence is certainly qolloquial. Unless there is something I have not seen. Epo mpelele!!
