As the world commemorates International Day to end Impunity for Crimes against Journalists, MISA Zimbabwe urges the Zimbabwean government to investigate cases involving the assault of journalists conducting their lawful professional duties.
Concerns over the establishment of the Cybersecurity Ministry mount as ministers make veiled threats about the use of social media.
This action by the presidium of barring private media from covering functions sets a dangerous precedent which may cascade down to other government officials who may in future tow the same line, and heighten the levels of media polarisation.
MISA Zimbabwe has launched its revamped website, making it easier to keep up with freedom of expression and access to information developments in Zimbabwe and across southern Africa.
MISA Zimbabwe is disquieted by the string of threats that have recently been issued against the use of social media by citizens.
MISA Zimbabwe joins the world in commemorating Right To Know Day and urges the Zimbabwean government to fulfil its constitutional and regional obligations to foster the enjoyment of citizens’ right to access to information.
Citizens have the right to freely express themselves online and offline while the media has the right to truthfully report and inform the nation on events as they unfold without fear.
Media reform can’t be ignored. Without independent media, it is impossible to ensure the forthcoming elections are free and fair.
