TOP broadcaster Ruvheneko Parirenyatwa is stepping down from her full-time role at the Zimpapers' Radio Division to pursue other opportunities, reported.

Close associates insisted late Tuesday that her departure was not related to a claimed "political cull" of senior staff at Zimpapers, the media behemoth which owns radio stations Star FM and Capitalk 100.4 FM, where "The Ruvheneko Show" airs.

Reports claimed Tuesday that Parirenyatwa had been sacked. She was said to have angered bosses at the company by hosting a programme in which one of her guests during the live show highly criticised the Zanu PF administration.

In a brief telephonic conversation with Parirenyatwa's close associates late Tuesday evening, was told that "Ruvheneko cannot have been fired, unless it happened after her resignation which makes no sense.

"It seems this is just a social media frenzy.

Ruvheneko said, "I will soon issue a statement on everything.

Close associates told that the Ms Parirenyatwa is leaving Zimpapers to pursue other opportunities.

"Ruvheneko had long indicated to management that she was stepping down from her full-time job," said one confidant.
