Ruvheneko Parirenyatwa recently revealed in a tweet that she has been fired from the state broadcaster, ZBC.
ZimTrending learned from online publication, ZimLive that the 31-year-old joined the state-owned broadcaster in September last year as director of corporate communications, but was fired suddenly on April 26 by board chairman Josaya Tayi and her exit from the ZBC was kept a closely-guarded secret, but the journalist let the cat out of the bag on Wednesday on Twitter.
“One day we won’t get suspended or fired for doing our jobs,” she tweeted. “One day we will get hired for our abilities and promoted for our brilliance. One day we won’t offend older men and women who feel threatened by excellence. Mediocrity and fear are the enemies of growth. One day, is one day.”

The development comes as the station she once worked for, CapiTalk – has suspended its head of content Nyaradzo Makombe.
Parirenyatwa was once fired from ZiFM Stereo for interviewing ThisFlag activist Evan Mawarire, and in August 2018, she was removed from CapiTalk over interviews she did of 1 August victims of violence.
