  1. The Ministry has caused this problem with the awkward TopStar deal. TV levy and other subscriptions now go to TopStar. Radio 1 doesn’t generate any revenue and all airtime is shared between Ministers and PF cadres and Trade King thereby making ZNBC unattractive. Change or sink

    • You won’t balance your financials if you continue with the trend of unbalance news reporting. If people don’t tune in to ZNBC because of biased news reports and outdated programs, who then will pay for a commercial advert to be aired on a news site that is not watched?
      ZNBC wake up and smell the coffee.

    • let them continue with “one Zambia one nation ” slogan .am sure it will finally pay off. manje where do the K5 t.v levies go?

    • People are tired with PF propaganda on ZNBC, change your business model and stop being puppets to silly and clueless PF politicians and see how ZNBC will make profit like Zambeef

    • ZNBC must be given to expatriates to run it, not our people. How can you raise money when all your news is just propaganda for one party. ARE YOU NOT ASHAMED? And here you are introducing use….less positions and yet you are failing to pay workers. Come on…Chief Operations Officer for ZNBC – TO DO WHAT? Cant you read the times? Cant you read the mood? Very insensitive

    • Be patient? The CEO is saying go and starve patiently but he still wants you to turn up for work to work on an empty stomach. Can you tell a hungry man to be patient?

    • Are you sure that word,patience can be feed to the children and use the same patience to buy fuel and pay for transport to and fro ZNBC. Please put yourself in there shoes.

  2. Still looking for money for November and December is already here and what about bonus for Xmas they will get in February 2020 I feel pity for znbc workers.

  3. It’s time to revive the commercial wing of znbc get a one off long term long from grz invite equity participants from the pvt sector and wean yourselves off handouts. IDC this time around bail them out for Nov and Dec don’t let out motola Kani suffer.

    • It all falls back to the painful reality…………..as long as you were employed not on merit ,but due to a relationship to someone ” influential ” what do you expect ? Imagine the Co operation has all the advantages , materials and subsidies to make it tick. Alas……..shame on nepotism., tribalism and ” loyalty ” at the expense of national pride.

  4. Its slowly becoming like daily mail and times of Zambia news prints….always reporting on good of government when people have alternative means from fake online papers, GoTV, Dstv, kwese and others……who reads daily news, times of Zambia or tunes to znbc channels??? I can’t remember myself the last I did that……you will be defunct soon if your ministers and pf party cadres don’t pay for airtime…. Government is broke… And there mula pocket sesico is also drained…. Muzakalauka manje….starting this coming month things will get even tougher……so you still show your lousy end of year party….muzakaitamba kamekedwe meanwhile your pockets are empty!

  5. You are busy eating and getting obese and even failing to satisfy your wives while workers starve and you are saying be patient??

  6. Apparently the Cooperbelt university is in the same mess lectures not paid what is going on in Zambia I feel like the president is just too weak or he doesn’t know what he is doing or what is going on in the country I think even me I can be a better president than him.

    • BA Sichalwe UNZA workers are also not yet paid. This is great. We told fellow Zambians that we were headed for turbulence and a possible crash. Yea Dununa reverse is sweeeet. They gyrated thief waists and heavy bust lines. Now it’s time to enjoy the after effects

  7. And quote “Meanwhile, Minister of Information and Broadcasting Services Dora Siliya has urged management at the Zambia National Broadcasting Corporation (ZNBC) to come up with long term measures of raising revenue.”

    When someone starts saying such just know we have reached a dead end…they have no plan B and the foolish deal the made with topstar is killing them. Oh my country Zambia do you even learn?

  8. This is path.etic. How I wish njala can also wait and be patient not to attack them. Hunger does not wait for anyone be serious.
    Disaster!!!!

  9. And its this same ZNBC that has introduced the position of deputy DG, surely the thing is limping and you are busy playing games. What type of ru…bish is this surely. Is there no thinking in this country any more. Creating employment for a cadre who will not add any value at all but just draw a salary. My foot!

  10. I thought I heard PF boasting the other day know the broadcast industry has improved, especially with a digital platform ????

    You can all Expect a k10 or k20 tv license fee to cushion the non stop PF propaganda. That is the only way they will get more money

  11. Same people insults dollars from toilets but failing to pay staff it is an insults to fail to pay your workers at least me I a being paid on monthly for cleaning toilets rather than you steel money then you fail to pay staff what a shame.

  12. We need a toilet cleaners movement/campaign to show these incompetent people that we are better off than them. Always paid on time.

  13. Big titles yet small brains or no brains at all…….. Shoe too big for your feet you so called directors at ZNBC !

  14. It’s painful to be treated to the same crap of a minister telling institution to come up with a lasting solution to a problem that a the government is actually the cause.
    Madam minister, if that is all you can offer on the ZNBC staff salaries issue, then it’s better , for a change, you keep your big mouth shut.
