ZBC Suspends Radio And TV Boss Tendai Madondo
State broadcaster Zimbabwe Broadcasting Corporation (ZBC) has suspended its acting head of radio and television services Tendai Madondo to pave way for a disciplinary hearing.
When contacted by Daily News for a comment, ZBC public relations manager Eltah Robbins confirmed the suspension yesterday but was unwilling to reveal the reasons why Madondo was suspended as well as the duration of the suspension. Said Robbins:
She was suspended pending a disciplinary procedure. Her position — head of radio and television services — is very central and critical and as such ZBC could not afford to let her carry on with her duties with a disciplinary process hanging over her head.
For this reason, she was suspended to allow her to concentrate on the disciplinary hearing.
I cannot comment on the length of the suspension because the matter will be handled in line with ZBC human resources procedures and that will determine the length of the procedure.
Sources told Daily News that Madondo was suspended on allegations of fraud.
