After striking Zambians with disappointment, ZNBC has promised to Televise the remaining AFCON Under 20 games.
According to ZNBC, the Corporate company is owing CAF $750,000 for the 2015 edition of the Africa Cup of Nations as of December 31st 2016. We were charged $141,424 as interest charges.For the 2017/2018 CAF competition package which includes the Under 20 tournament being held in Zambia .ZNBC has been requested to pay £400,000. This is why they failed to televise the Tournament at first.
ZNBC Corporate Affairs Manager Masuzyo Ndhlovu says the National Broadcaster has however been granted broadcasting rights by CAF.
“Broadcast Rights in Africa is always a big issue and is big business,no politics involved but purely a Business deal.ZNBC will televise all the remaining AFCON games.Thanks to CAF and thanks FAZ.” said Mr. Ndhlovu
