GOVERNMENT says it has received with deep shock and sorrow the death of ZNBC television journalist Faith Kandaba who passed away yesterday at the University Teaching Hospital (UTH) in Lusaka after an illness.
Information and Broadcasting Services Minister Chishimba Kambwili said Government had no words to describe the pain of losing a dedicated and hardworking journalist at the peak of her journalism career.
Mr Kambwili said the late Ms Kandaba was a household name on ZNBC television in her various responsibilities such as news casting, interviewing, production of documentaries and live television commentaries.
He said Ms Kandaba was an efficient newscaster and interviewer who will be missed by the corporation, the Government and the country as a whole.
“In her work, Ms Kandaba had a passion to use the media to bring positive change among citizens. Government, therefore, urges journalists around the country to emulate the passion and standards that the late Ms Kandaba brought to the broadcasting industry.” Mr Kambwili said.
