The Zimbabwe Broadcasting Corporation (ZBC) has dissociated itself from a fake twitter handle @MavhuraPatrick, purporting to be that of ZBC’s Chief Executive Officer Mr Patrick Mavhura.
In a statement, ZBC says the account in question has issued fake news related to ZBC human resource issues.
It has also issued false information on internal staff appointments as well as false congratulatory messages for these appointments.
In this vein, ZBC would like to inform its valued stakeholders that it does not issue staff appointments via social media.
“As a corporation that values the ethics that govern the media and broadcasting sector, we condemn in the strongest sense such behaviour and we will be taking the necessary steps to establish the motive behind such actions,” read the statement.
ZBC sincerely apologises for any inconveniences that may have been caused to the target persons in these notices and to its stakeholders.
