ZNBC, Times of Zambia workers not paid

😀This is the public service broadcaster without salaries

Civil servants and PF cadres working as journalists for ZNBC and Times of Zambia are surviving on nkongole as they have not been paid there salaries.

ZNBC workers have not been paid since last month but they dutifully push government propaganda on empty stomachs. One of their favourite ‘news’ items is how the PF has developed Zambia through unprecedented development
.
At Times of Zambia it is worse. Last Friday, Unionised workers at the PF newspaper went on work stoppage.

The workers who are owed up to eight months arrears have been angered by a plea from management to bear with them for the delay in paying salaries.

Management in a letter addressed to the workers said the company is facing liquidity problems as the money collected is not enough to meet all expenses such as salaries which take about 75 percent of total cash inflow per month.

Company Managing Director Beston Ng’onga said collection of money by debt collectors has been hard as most companies are facing serious liquidity problems adding that they are trying hard to meet their obligation to workers and with your support and patience will succeed.

“Let us see how much we collect by tomorrow, otherwise we will have no option but to implement batch payment. We are also proposing that money allowing we may have to pay you double salaries this month to avoid accumulating an arrear. this is just a proposal and depends on money collected”, the letter issued by Mr Ng’onga read in part.

    We are not paid at Daily Mail for months. Nobody talks about it.

    If Government can not sort out problems of small organizations like ZNBC Times of Zambia, how can you expect them to manage the Zambian economy. It looks like the nation is on auto pilot.

    Lungu and his corrupt PF have finally understood that pumping money in the unwatched ZNBC and the unread Times and Day Mail (both with a circulation of less than ten thousand copies – imagine) is a total waste of money; money that could have gone in their own pockets!

      Hollow Horn is a paid agent of the south African Boers. He is a facilitator and conduit of money laundering from Zambia to biers and his accounts. A crook by nature, an elitist by nature, a swindler by Zambia wotchdoggy

    Serves these unimaginative charlatans right. These media provide nothing but manufactured “news”.

    Why don’t they go on strike? They are not essential workers in any case. They should exercise their rights to strike.

      Cadres also make poor managers.

      By barring opposition ads and sponsored programmes to please their masters, ZNBC is also losing out on income.

    I feel sorry for my fellow citizens who are going without pay all because of the Zambian weakness of not learning lessons until it’s too late. But according to Lubinda Habazoka and Margaret Mwanakatwe, Zambia has no financial crisis. Felix Mutati recognised the problem the first day he was in office as finance minister and wanted to deal with it. Why Mutati thought he could fit in PF chaotic govt after cutting his political teeth in the order and discipline of Mwanawasa’s govt is beyond me.
