Here is how some of the Twitter users responded to the announcement by the Broadcasting Authority of Zimbabwe’s (BAZ) that Kwese TV has not been licenced.
Those at the top (in Zim):
1. Love things.
2. Block things from coming into Zim for ordinary folk.
3. Travel abroad to buy things.

1. The KweseTV debacle & the defence of govt's unreasonableness is a good reminder of ZANU PF's toxicity whether united or factionalised.

Lol. Why not start by licencing the alternative that has been started by our very own. Banning is not a solution pple will subscribe in SA.

2. Kwese TV has been authorised to operate in many African countries, except in Zimbabwe, the original home of its mother company.

Correct positn is Multichoice Zim isn't a foreign company. It's just a franchisee of Multichoice SA. It's owned by locals like Mangwende
