The PF government is in the process of borrowing money from Topstar a Chinese company running the Zambia National Broadcasting Corporation (ZNBC) Dead NBC as it is commonly known to pay Times of Zambia employees.
A Ministry of Information and Broadcasting official has disclosed that Topstar has been asked to advance Times of Zambia over K2 million Kwacha to pay salaries and other financial obligations for Times of Zambia employees for at least two months.
Times of Zambia employees despite publishing the Government Gazzette daily have gone without salaries for seven months now. How Topstar that owns 60 percent of Dead NBC will recover the money, no one knows. May be Topstar will get shares.
