A flurry of resignations have hit local media company, Alpha Media Holdings, owned by Trevor Ncube.

The company, which publishes anti-Government titles like Newsday, The Standard and Zimbabwe Independent, is losing talent at a rate industry observers have described as alarming.

The company, months back lost Dumisani Muleya, Brezhnev Malaba, who were the Editor and Deputy Editor of the Zimbabwe Independent when they opened their online platform NewsHawks.

Nyasha Chingono, Benard Mpofu and Owen Gagare also jumped ship, from Zimbabwe Independent to the OSISA based publication which has up to now failed to live up to its promise.

The stable has now lost its Chief Writer Andrew Kunambura, who has crossed the floor to as its editor.

Kunambura made the announcement in a long post on social media recently.

Sources within the stable say Kunambura`s exit is just the beginning, as other senior journalists are said to be seeking to leave the troubled publisher.

Everson Mushava, who was now the news editor at the Newsday is also said to be sitting in the departure lounge.

AMH is notorious for poor salaries, which are consistently paid late, much to the frustrations of reporters who are at this point said to be subsidizing the company.
