Maridadi Slams Outdated ZBC : ‘i only tuned in when Gucci Grace was on stage’
OUTSPOKEN Mabvuku-Tafara MP, James Maridadi has slammed his former employers at ZBC for failing to digitalise the broadcaster when the country was first ahead of its neighbours in introducing a television station back in the 1960s.
In his comments, Maridadi lambasted the government for its continued reluctance to open the country’s broadcasting space to private players.
Maridadi claimed he only watched ZBC when Grace was speaking just to hear ‘who she would insult this time’
“Since I left ZBC in 2000, if I put together all the time that I have listened to all the four radio stations including television, it would not add up to an hour. When I listen to ZBC, I get angry with myself to say why am I allowing my country to sink like this,” he said.
Maridadi urged those campaigning for licensing of private broadcasters to dump their unyielding diplomacy and confront the Zanu PF led government over their concerns.
