Phathisani Sibanda Sends A Warning Shot As Tinashe Chikuse Resigns From ZBC After 20 Years


Tinashe Chikuse, one-half of the beloved Power FM Breakfast duo, has tendered his resignation after spending an impressive two decades with the Zimbabwe Broadcasting Corporation (ZBC).

In a touching letter shared on his Facebook page, Chikuse expressed his heartfelt gratitude to the organization and its listeners.

His resignation, which took effect on the 3rd of this month, marks the end of an era for many.

Although he is yet to decide on his next move, Chikuse remains optimistic about his future. He drew inspiration from the lyrics of his famous signature track, Marshal Munhumumwe’s Ndibvumbamireiwo, which he considers a prayer to the creator.

“As I ponder my next move and in the midst of pain, I’m reassured by the lyrics in my famous signature track, that is Marshal Munhumumwe’s Ndibvumbamireiwo.

To me it’s not just a song, it’s a prayer, a cry to the creator to be with me always……

Dear Lord, Ndibvumbamireiwo!

In all this I see light at the end of the tunnel, I see another opportunity maybe another microphone …I am confident we will have another dance All in God’s time,” part of the letter penned on his Facebook page reads.

Sibanda and Chikuse were suspended from Power FM due to a series of misdemeanours, including intentionally skipping NetOne adverts.


While the ZBC Disciplinary Committee was still deliberating their case, Sibanda was headhunted by the new TV station, nrtv.
