Addressing participants to the UNESCO-funded World Press Freedom Day celebrations at the Harare Polytechnic, Acting Information Minister Simon Khaya Moyo yesterday warned journalists against partisan politics, saying scribes must ‘leave politics to political parties.”
Said Khaya Moyo:
Let us steer clear from the old snare of media polarisation which seeks to entrap our media into joining partisan politics. Let us leave politics to the political parties and we have over 124 of them in the country and more may still emerge to contest the forthcoming harmonised elections, and let us be professional journalists and demonstrate not only to the outside world but to ourselves in the run-up to the elections that we are not partisan.
