Dr. Dzingai Mutumbuka, the former minister of education and culture for Zimbabwe at Independence, has called the journalists of the Zimbabwe Broadcasting Corporation idiots who are either unaware of the importance of journalistic ethics or involved in corruption.
He called the situation at the State-run media outlet as appalling.
Mutumbuka, who has been fighting for the past two years to reclaim his $600,000 house that was lost due to a forged title deed, claimed he spoke with ZBC about the matter for the benefit of the public, but the interview was never printed.
“ZTV spoke with me but took no action. In my biased perspective, they are either ignorant people who attended a small-town journalism school and are blind to the fact that a trending topic is there in front of them, or they are just plain stupid. Alternatively, it might be because they are involved in corruption.
