HARARE – The Zimbabwe Broadcasting Corporation has announced that radio and Television transmission is down following a power outage at its Pockets Hill Broadcasting Centre.
Said ZBC News in a Twitter post:
The Zimbabwe Broadcasting Corporation would like to inform all valued stakeholders that its Pockets Hill Broadcasting Centre has suffered a power outage. This has affected radio & TV transmission. We apologise for the inconvenience. Engineers are working to restore services.
ZTV and ZBC radio stations have been down on Monday Morning.
ZBC did not reveal the cause of the power outage.
The state-run broadcaster has often been accused of being partisan, repeating programmes and content, and lacking creativity.
Since Zimbabwe has one television channel, it means there is no TV when ZBC TV is down.
There have been calls for Zimbabwe to effect media reforms to allow more independent players in the sector as information is vital for governance purposes.
