We should budget for a situation in which the paranoid and collapsing Zanu PF regime will maintain its vice – like grip on the State – controlled media; particularly the electronic media, between now and the holding of election 2018. This is where the use of social media becomes paramount. Yes, social media can be effectively used to penetrate all those areas (particularly rural areas),where the Zanu PF regime has virtually ring – fenced villagers and made it almost impossible for opposition political parties to conduct any meaningful public meetings and rallies. Facebook, Twitter, WhatsApp, Instagram etc, are the new weapons of mass communication in Zimbabwe.
