State Broadcaster, the Zimbabwe Broadcasting Corporation (ZBC) has denied allegations that it is politically biased in favour of the ruling ZANU PF party.
Appearing before the Parliamentary Portfolio Committee on Media chaired by Prince Dubeko Sibanda on Thursday, the ZBC head of news and current affairs Gilbert Nyambabvu said:
There is an inherent perception by certain individuals that they will not be covered by ZBC.

When I was an editor of a certain media organisation before going to ZBC, I was in regular communication with some members of the MDC and they gave me their diaries.
However, after I joined the ZBC, I have not had any request from MDC members to cover any of their events and perhaps they think that they are not going to be covered.
