Mutsvangwa Exhorts Corporates To Avail PPEs For Journalists

Information, Publicity and Broadcasting Services Minister Monica Mutsvangwa has implored the corporate sector to provide more personal protective equipment (PPE) to journalists as they play an important role in the fight against COVID-19.

Mutsvangwa made the call on Friday after receiving a donation of PPEs to journalists by Nyaradzo Group, a local funeral insurance company. She said:

The media plays a crucial role in the fight against COVID-19 and it has been designated as an essential service.

Issues of safety and protection of the media against COVID-19 during the course of their work can not be taken lightly.

As I welcome this gesture of Nyaradzo Group, I call on other corporates to dig deeper and do even more for our journalists.

These men and women are providing vital information to our nation about COVID-19.

Mutsvangwa also noted the crucial role played by the media in combating fake news propagated via social media platforms by mischievous individuals. She added:

The media has been working tirelessly to promote reliable information and combat misinformation that is usually spread via social media by some unscrupulous individuals.
