Media Fraternity Backs Govt Move To Eradicate Sex Pests In Newsrooms

The media fraternity has backed the move taken by the Information, Publicity and Broadcasting Services Minister Monica Mutsvangwa in eradicating sex pests in newsrooms.

Zimbabwe Union of Journalists (ZUJ) national president Mr Michael Chideme had this to say:

What the minister said is a move in the right direction. This will complement our campaigns against the abuse of women in the newsrooms that we have done for a decade.

Meanwhile, Voluntary Media Council of Zimbabwe (VMCZ) executive director Mr Loughty Dube said:

This is a positive statement and I sincerely hope that her statement will be heeded. They should come up with a national gender policy that will protect both males and females from abuse at all workplaces.

It will now mean that our media policy would be derived from that national policy. It should not end with just policies, but they should be capacitated so that it can be implemented effectively.

Mutsvangwa revealed last week that her Ministry will come up with reforms aimed at observing the rights of women at the workplace and eradicating sexual abuse in the newsrooms.
