The panic mode that had engulfed the media fraternity over the missing of Costa Nkomo, a journalist employed with NewsZimbabwe.com elapsed after his return.
Costa told his workmates that he was at a prayer mountain in Bindura.
The unfortunate part was lack of communication from the former 263 Chat Reporter.
Media publications and social media corridors had been awash with message purporting that Costa had been missing.
Following his resurfacing, Young Association of Journalists (YOJA) Spokesperson issued a statement confirming Costa’s come back.
“The Young Journalists Association (YOJA) would like to express its gratitude for the love shown and efforts of everyone who was involved in the search for Costa Nkomo.
We regret the recklessness of his actions and hope this incident serves as a lesson to everyone else within the media industry and in other circles that no matter the challenge, communication is key.
“Nkomo chose to travel all the way to Bindura for a prayer session without notifying anyone. He switched off all his phones and assumed no one would look for him as he was on leave.
“It is saddening that he did not imagine the noise that might arise once we all realised he was not reachable.”
