BBEEE Status


Zimele comes from a Zulu word which means, “ to stand on your own, and be independent”. This forms the essence of our ethos and is at the forefront in Zimele’s duty to encourage ethics in business as well as responsibility and accountability while growing the potential of previously disadvantaged individuals.

Furthermore, at Zimele, we firstly believe in “developing and promoting from within” thereby giving our own staff first choice of partaking in the opportunities arising and greater participation in the economy of our diverse country.

Zimele Broadcasting Services is fully committed to building a stimulating environment in a manner that we believe is effective and sustainable, characterised by cultural diversity.

Our aim is to contribute to the transformation of the structure of our economy through addressing the basic needs of our people, especially the women and the youth in order to promote the growth and development of those previously disadvantaged.
