Speaking during the ZimDigital Broadcast Content Creators meeting in Gweru on Thursday, George Charamba says that Government will sponsor productions by independent content producers and then buy some of the material.
The Government is going to sponsor the production of the first three contents and will also buy the material. At the same time, if you have already produced your content, your expenditure enroute to the final product will be considered. We will also give you cameras for making the content. We are preparing for more programme diversity. We will have more programming and that’s why we called this meeting. We have a lot of work to do in terms of content production. Channel capacity is going to increase and so demand for programmes will also increase.
He also said they were also working on changing laws, so that content producers get what is due to them
