Good morning dear ZNBC workmates, the past 11 years plus have been an awesome experience working at the public Broadcaster. Its been a childhood dream come true.

I am grateful to management for having had the faith in me to serve from Reporter through to Assistant Assignments Editor for TV1 which is a position that comes with lots of pressure but with your help we managed.

Memories have been sweet, exploring the world for reporting and training during which I have established a global network of media people.

Through ZNBC I managed to upgrade my academic credentials from Diploma to Degree and soon to finish my MBA. I remain indebted to my immediate supervisor Mwila Nsofu for having been flexible for me to pursue my studies through ma local leave or some arrangement for exams.

Apologies to those I may have hurt, obviously unintentional because I’m one of the sweetest and gentle souls that you will ever come across. (It’s not bragging if you can back up. Lol, thats on a lighter note.)

Most likely hurtful things could have emanated from my insatiable appetite of not massaging the truth and saying things as they are. That’s just a trait I live by and I guess won’t change.

I am leaving ZNBC for other ventures. I am sure that most of you know that I resigned early this month and proceeded on leave.

With a reputation and brand that most of us who go on TV at ZNBC have made, it’s obviously difficult to keep word of joining another firm under wraps because employees in those organizations also get excited that we are joining them hence word spreads faster than wild fire. It’s no secret that the name Brian Mwale is a strong national brand supported by works and experience.

For the avoidance of doubt, some of you may know that my resignation was necessitated by a job offer as Corporate Affairs Manager at ZEMA whose contract was signed last year and was set to report on Feb 1.

However, in a dramatic turn of events my contract was terminated by the new DG for unknown reasons within hours if him reporting. But word is that some known ZNBC Reporter engaged political players who influenced the termination on allegations of me being a PF Cadre. Being linked to a party that almost kicked me out of ZNBC on allegations that I was opposition. Records are there with HR.

We all have the potential to be petty and speak ill of others to politicians but doing so is evil as we put humanity in front hence refrain. Our conscious would not allow us to sink so low because the question is how does that benefit me, my family and faith?

Those who know me pretty well can attest that partisan politics has never been my cup of tea. It’s sad that some people could even stoop so low and take to social media of their ill intentions after learning about my appointment. The evidence is clear.

Colleagues, these jobs are advertised to the public and everyone is free to report. The only thing they request for are academic credentials and proven experience which some of us have having offered our services to local and foreign firms. They never say these jobs are a preserve of some people from a particular region or who like this.

However, you can only slow progress and success but you can’t stop it. I’m well educated, experienced and innovative and we shall survive because GOD takes care of his own.

It’s unfortunate that those that wined and dinned with PF are the ones claiming to be more UPND than Mazoka the founder all because of pushing for a sense of belonging. Unfortunately politicians easily fall for such nonsense and never look at the impact that such moves have on individuals or government.

So picture this; you are given a job offer, sign contract and even resign from your work and part away of with part of your benefits accumulated over 11 years then someone tampers with your appointment sending you on the streets suddenly.

You have a G12 leaver reader to go to University and a new G10 coupled with other children in pre-grade. NO Health scheme which my ailing parents used more and now completely NO income. This is pure witchcraft.

You may jubilate now thinking you are all powerful and all but remember nature has a way of balancing itself and such acts don’t just slide away like that. Remember not everyone within the system is fooled by your acts, some love us and enjoy our works and professionalism.

For those in the habit of fighting others because they don’t want to see others succeed, fate will give you what you deserve. Making innocent people shade tears because of your bad mouthing basically means you are attracting bad omens and generational curses. For now all maybe well and smooth for you but tears of those you hound out even after leaving ZNBC will not leave you in peace. Generational curses mean you, your children and their children not finding peace and success all because of your sins.

I Harbour no ill feelings for you and the people you connived with ine because I refuse to be trapped in hatred. I however prayed for your long life as I know we shall cross paths another day or your name will pop up through your children.

I am thankful for having built a strong family and network in and through ZNBC. For me the greatest gift of all is being alive, because it presents you an opportunity of pushing and making things better.

I will be leaving all the ZNBC groups soon I’m just here to say goodbye and we shall be meeting on the streets for ZNBC has had a huge positive impact on my life.


The Brian Mwale


  1. Jealousy expresses itself in various ways. If someone qualified for a position on merit and was successful and appointed as the rightful candidate. Why should speculations from non panelists be admissable from people who were never on a panel to interview this unfortunate now jobless person.

    If such a question was needed it should have been asked during the interview. Unfortunately it appears it happened unofficially and was executed leaving the individual without a job.

    It’s most unfortunate and this type of behaviour if true should be seriously looked into . This is worse than the cadre manipulation we as a nation have been subjected to for many years.

    This is very disturbing and strange behavior.

    The allegation that a select few are imaging as the secret spies who have information to disqualify others based of unprofessional or acceptable standard procedures is very alarming as it destroys professionalism and scorns the very essence of interviews.

    This should stop immediately. Very disappointing news.

  2. This is happening everyday in Zambia. I know this first hand and have insider information, the CEO positions for ZICTA, RDA and RATSA were advertised and very qualified zambians with international experience from reputable organizations applied. Merit was not followed. These expirienced applicants were not acknowledged let alone interviewed. Their CVs were more or less thrown in the dust bins.
    The current office bearers have a fraction of educational qualifications and experience compared to some who applied.

  3. This is so sad, may Jehovah God make a way for you and your family bro. Exodus 14 Vs 14 says that the Lord shall fight your battles and you shall hold your peace. Continue putting your faith in God,he will surely fight for you.

    • Perhaps Brian should also reflect on his past and how he even got ZNBC. The guy was plucked from MUVI TV by PF to work for the ZNBC and the job was never advertised, there was no interview etc. Simply put he didnt get his job on merit but through caderism and nepotism from his PF sponsors at the expense of so many other Zambians that were more qualified than him.
      You see, nature has a way of balancing things out. I just hope that Brian Mwale will learn to earn his opportunities in future and avoid short cuts. I fully sympathise with him in his current situation. However, we should also not forget people that were slighted by his own PF party that suffered a similar fate if not worse. Just speak to Clayson Haamasaka if you want a contrast.

  4. This nonsense has been happening for so many years. Many innocent people with their families have suffered. Government after government this trend has been the most traumatising. How do you terminate the contract of someone before reporting for work? This is a very inhuman act which should be condemned in strongest terms. Either personal vendetta or political, the act is regreatable and especially that someone resigned.
    Where is the Law in this case? Brian needs to seek legal counsel and persue this matter so that those in positions of influence should learn a lesson and reflain from such acts now and in future.
    The law is there also for such acts and Brian çan seek compensation for an ubrupt termination of contract without proper reasons
    These things have been happening since independence.
    This are the things the current President condemned in strong terms and l don’t think he can condone this nonsense. Do some people just want to tarnish his name????

  5. Zambians have become so evil. How could someone do such a thing to a fellow Zambian? But we are busy complaining about foreigners this, foreigners that. When are we going to learn to support each other? It’s a real shame for people who do such things to others.

  6. The one who has terminated his contract need to be investigated and be fired immediately.
    What reasons can he give when he has not been in the organization himself. Bane this is hatred, heartless, moraless an any other less less less….

  7. Meantime you can start selling tumbuwa and freezit outside ZNBC main gate. I’m sure your former colleagues from znbc will support you by buying from you.

    • Please do not make mockery of Brian Mwale. When people are discussing important issues it is time to put way casual jokes and concentrate on what can build someone passing through a challenge. It is well God Almighty will fight for brother Brian Mwale.

  8. From personal experience about how the majority of Zambians behave, I dare say that Brian Mwale’s closest friend at ZNBC who has remained junior there betrayed him. The dangerous trait that Zambians have, especially when they are happy, working and drawing a salary is that THEY TALK TOO MUCH. Brian may have confided to a so called BFF at ZNBC who turned blue with jealousy and teamed up with another person who had connections at ZEMA – he could even be a fellow Easterner (sometimes it’s not tribal…it’s just pure envy) and together they advanced the PF cadre lie and him being my mbuya means he needed to be jettisoned in preference for a UPND sympathiser. For me it was my mbuyas from the East who teamed up and pushed my boss to give me a very short contract after the previous span and funny enough they all were my juniors whom I personally recruited in my department.

    No I’ll feelings as I have moved on and the LORD is blessing me more than when I was there.
