Poorly paid QFM radio reporters face dismissal for seeking greener pastures

Hi Editor
I hope you fine under the good care of our Lord. First I would like to express my sincere thanks to you members of your team for your resilience in ensuring that ill intentions and maladministration of the country by those in the corridors of power are exposed.
Please keep up your good works.
Take a look at the peace below and see if it may be of use to you, my colleagues are in trouble and only you can expose this injustice.
To Editor (Zambian Watchdog)
QFM REPORTERS are likely to be dismissed after management discovered that they have been seeking employment in the private and public sectors, sources within have revealed.
The frustrated reporters are tired of poor conditions of service and their imminent exit is an indication of the many challenges media personnel in Zambia are subjected to.
And the Radio Station management is in the process of firing four of its reporters for allegedly applying for Jobs at ZANIS and a named security wing.
The reporters have suffered humiliation ranging from extremely low salaries, interference to verbal abuse at the hands of their selfish and big headed Directors.
Qfm is widely known for its role in last year’s general elections where it fully and unrelentlessly covered and provided a platform for the Patriotic Front and other opposition political parties in the run up to the polls.
The reporters are so frustrated that they have opted to using the social network ‘facebook’ to seek for intervention from plot one
Sources within the radio station have revealed that the fully qualified newsroom staff is being subjected to getting the same salaries as an office orderly.
The hostility prevailing has prompted the editor, his assistance and two reporters to embark on massive job hunts but they will soon be faced with double tragedy as management is currently processing their dismissal letters.
QFM Directors reluctantly increased Reporters’ Monthly salaries from US$150 to US$200 which still remains below the required minimum wage.
More updates to come soon.
