The Media Institute of Southern Africa (MISA) Zimbabwe chapter has called on President Emmerson Mnangagwa to prioritise the implementation of media reforms, which are now overdue. During a post-2018 Elections Media Conference organised by MISA Zimbabwe and Konrad Adenauer Stiftung, delegates resolved to maintain and sustain pressure on the need for media law and policy reforms. Delegates said President Mnangagwa should be guided by the findings and recommendations of the government-sanctioned 2014 Information and Media Panel of Inquiry (IMPI).
MISA Zimbabwe Chairperson Golden Maunganidze said
The next five years and beyond, cannot be business as usual without the envisaged reforms. Paradoxically, Zimbabwe cannot be open to business but closed to media reforms.
