Misa Zimbabwe Files Urgent Application To Livestream Con Court’s Hearing Into Presidential Challenge

The Media Institute of Southern Africa (MISA) Zimbabwe has filed an urgent application at the Constitutional Court seeking permission for the live broadcasting and streaming of Nelson Chamisa’s presidential challenge scheduled for Wednesday. State-owned media company ZBC  has already been granted permission to broadcast the court proceedings live. Bulawayo-based freelance journalist Busani Bafana applied together with Misa-Zimbabwe saying the court proceedings are of national interest. Says Bafana in his application,

…I believe that the live-streaming of the proceedings in the matter… accords with modern journalistic trends in that the process will enable journalists like myself, that are not resident in Harare; and cannot readily travel to that city, to completely, accurately and effectively report on the matter in real time for the public benefit.

The use of cell phones is not permitted in Zimbabwean courtrooms. The court will, therefore, have to condone their use before media practitioners can use them to cover events. Should the Constitutional Court rule in the applicants’ favour, they will be allowed to film and live stream the hearing.
