The Minister for Information, Publicity and Broadcasting Services Monica Mutsvangwa said that she plans to deal decisively with the harassment of female journalists and interns which is rife at media houses.
Mutsvangwa said this while speaking to The Herald on International Women’s Day. She said:
One of the first issues I attended to when I assumed office as Minister of Information was to meet with media organisations and the media houses to tackle various challenges affecting journalists, and abuse of female journalists and interns is one issue I have spoken about at length at each of these engagements.
I also plan to take it a step further and meet with deans at universities and colleges in order to hammer the point home that abuse will not be tolerated not just in the workplace, but even in the learning institutions.
