ZBC Demanded $57 000 Per Day To Air Our Adverts Complains MDC Alliance

Aspiring member of parliament for Mbizo, Settlement Chikwinya of MDC Alliance has bemoaned the prohibitive amounts being charged by the state-owned ZBC to air political adverts for his coalition. Speaking to the media, Chikwinya said,

Which political party in this failing economy can afford such high rates? We took a quotation from ZTV for our advertising. What we discovered in ridiculous.

The MDC Alliance will need to fork out daily $57,936 for us to be able to have between today and the day of elections for us to be able to have 48, five minutes slots, two times a day during breakfast and evening times.

Zanu PF is by default getting its adverts done because they are being covered under the presidential programmes as the ruling party. We have demanded to see proof Zanu PF is paying but that proof has been failing to come. But as the opposition, we are demanded to pay that hefty amount.

  1. Unbelievable lies, why MDC-Allience always? why so pathetic about everything? Why do you always lie? What do you want that is just ? What is your motive? What are you in the New Zimbabwe ? What have you done good ?

  2. Mayeeee๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚uChamisa uzayikwanisa yini yonke imali leyi uzacela futhi amadonations kkkk

  3. iMDC alliance ayiqambi nje amanga alikhathali yini lina bantu sesikhathele ngani yonke indawo MDC this MDC that awwww bantu

  4. Mohadi advised kuti media houses cover all parties equally kuitira marohwa musazoti hatina kukwanisa kunge taAdvertiser

  5. i think mdc should keep on complaining cause that is the only way they can fill their participation in this election

  6. Kkkk don’t worry MDC lingacomplain just ask for donations you will get the money to pay ZBC for adverts๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

  7. The last time Chamisa aitikumbira mari …I think tikabatanidza mari tese MDC inogona kuzokwana or inogona Kutotadza kukwana cause tiri vashoma

  8. Let us not be quick to dismiss their complaints, yes I share the popular concern that mdc alliance’s complaints are becoming too much and at times childish, but at the same time it is these little things that end up contributing to unfair elections, the mdia should be non-partisan and for us to really feel the sweeping air of democracy we also need to see State owned parastals such as ZBC euqally representing all political parties.
