Rumour: Ruvheneko set to join the ZBC news and current affairs division. Former Zimpapers projects manager and Capitalk radio presenter Ruvheneko Parirenyatwa has joined the ZBC, sources told ZimLive.
The daughter of former cabinet minister and Zanu PF’s secretary for health David Parirenyatwa, Ruvhi – as she is known by her fans – is expected to host a current affairs interview programme and join the team for live broadcasts.
Parirenyatwa was forced out of Zimpapers in August last year after her guest on her Capitalk show, National Patriotic Front spokesman Jealousy Mawarire, criticised Vice President Constantino Chiwenga and the former British ambassador to Zimbabwe, Catriona Laing.
The incident illustrated the Zanu PF government’s control of the public media, which is even firmer at the ZBC which is wholly-owned by the state. Last week, Ruvhi hosted the YouthConnekt Africa Summit in Kigali, Rwanda, where she got the opportunity to introduce President Paul Kagame.
The summit, which is the largest youth gathering on the continent, attracted some 8,000 delegates from across the continent and beyond. Participants were drawn from 91 countries.
Parirenyatwa declined to be interviewed, as did the ZBC’s acting CEO Wisdom Hombarume. Meanwhile, ZBC employees are yet to be paid their salaries for September.
The workers wrote to management in August demanding a review of their salaries, but the broke public broadcaster is failing to pay the current inflation-ravaged salaries on time.
A new board chaired by President Emmerson Mnangagwa’s doctor, Josaya Tayi, is reportedly seeking a government bailout to ease the crisis.
