Zambezi Magic has an exciting new year planned for our viewers! Two audience favourites are returning for new seasons this January – a good reason for Uncle Limbani and Date My Family Zambia fans to celebrate!
The raucous comedy Uncle Limbani’s season 3 premieres on 6 January 2023, while the hilarious dating reality series Date My Family Zambia returns for season 4 on 29 January 2023.
“As a premium content channel, Zambezi Magic’s aim is to keep our subscribers entertained with the best shows made for locals by locals. Both returning shows are a hit with our viewers, and we’re excited to see where the new seasons take us. With Uncle Limbani airing on Fridays and Date My Family Zambia on Sundays, we are ensuring that your weekend viewing is taken care of,” says channel head Mosibudi Pheeha.
“Kicking off the new year with familiar shows is only the beginning of what we have in store for our viewers,” she concludes.
Friday nights are off to an uproarious start with the return of our lovable, bumbling lead in Uncle Limbani. Come season 3, the hilarious big dreamer lands himself in even bigger trouble – whether it’s about money or women.
Caught in a love triangle with the strong-willed Gertrude and the wily Tinashe, Limbani’s romantic antics are catching up with him – and affecting his work life, in the process. Faced with two women who both need his support (financial and otherwise), Limbani goes to extremes to make his hustle work for him. But will it work against him? Double the love equals double the trouble!
Speaking of all things romance, the reality dating show Date My Family Zambia is back for season 4, adding humour and reality to our Sunday nights. Once again, a fresh group of singletons are looking for love – but hopefully in the right places.
Be a fly on the wall as we follow a bachelor or bachelorette on a date with a prospective partner’s family. They may feel good, smell fresh and have everything on point for the first date with the family, but will it be enough to land a boyfriend or girlfriend? We can only wish them the best!
Catch the return of Uncle Limbani when season 3 premieres on Friday 6 January 2023 at 21h30. Date My Family Zambia season 4 premieres on Sunday 29 January at 20h00. Both hit shows are on Zambezi Magic (DStv Channel 162 and GOtv Supa Channel 5), bookending your weekends with love and laughter.

ZRA dismisses fake social recruitment post.
THE Zambia Revenue Authority (ZRA) has dismissed reports circulating on social media platforms purporting that the authority has advertised for jobs.
ZRA Corporate Communications Manager Oliver Nzala said the social media reports are fake adding the general public should not be duped by unscrupulous people who are forging and coming up with fake ZRA documents in order to swindle unsuspecting people.
Mr Nzala said the fake recruitment adverts are a concern to the authority because some members of the public who are desperate for employment get swindled.
He urged the public to be on high alert concerning the scam, saying the unscrupulous people should be reported to the nearest police station or any ZRA office.
Mr Nzala also dispelled reports that the authority had set up a trust fund.
“The ZRA would like to warn and urge members of the public to strongly ignore and treat social media posts circulating, purporting that there is a Zambia Revenue Support Trust Fund Program and that the Authority has advertised for jobs, as fake. We have noted with great concern fake recruitment adverts circulating on social media purporting to have been issued by the ZRA. This is a big concern for the Authority because some members of the public who are desperate for employment get swindled,”he said.
He said ZRA’s recruitment process is anchored on core values of transparency, professionalism and integrity.
Mr Nzala said that ZRA advertises job vacancies on their website and in the print media.
He said in the past the authority has received cases from some being swindled of hard-earned cash by unscrupulous people purporting to be recruitment agents for ZRA.
He explained the swindlers send fake messages inviting the unsuspecting general public to attend interviews or assessment tests, conduct police clearance, undergo medical examinations and report for work.
