Potraz, BAZ To Merge

Speaking after touring the proposed Maphisa digital broadcasting transmission yesterday, Information, Media and Broadcasting Services Mr George Charamba said cabinet has approved the merger of the Broadcasting Authority of Zimbabwe (BAZ) and the Postal and Telecommunications Regulatory Authority of Zimbabwe (POTRAZ) into a single regulatory authority.

Said Charamba:

The rationale behind merging BAZ and Potraz is simple; we are dealing with an industry that has been reconfirmed by technology and we talking of technological convergence in an area that historically has been distinct. With merging we will not have any wall between the two entities. It means as you regulate the telecoms you must be mindful of what is happening in the broadcasting so the best way would be to have one regulatory authority so that decisions are done in a way that encompasses the whole sector.
