MISA Zimbabwe is involved in other interventions which include community media activism, research and capacity of building and other civil society networks. In engaging community media activists, community based organistions and social movements MISA-Zimbabwe seeks to ensure that communities are capacitated to run their own alternative community media platforms and are able to access information by probing accountability from the relevant authorities.
Beyond internal project linkages, the proposed activities also feed into the broader strategy of media groups under the Media Alliance of Zimbabwe (MAZ) umbrella. For instance, the proposed engagement of parliamentarians is one of the vehicles that MISA-Zimbabwe intends to continue with as part of its contribution towards the attainment of the MAZ goal whereby every citizen enjoys the right to freedom of expression and access to information. MAZ partners’ aim to enhance access to information held by public bodies.
MISA Zimbabwe’s partnerships not only feed into its vision and mission of seeing a Zimbabwe which has diverse, plural, independent and sustainable media, but will also contribute towards the broader objective of ensuring the full enjoyment of Zimbabweans’ constitutionally guaranteed right to freedom of expression.
