ZBC Launches Robert Mugabe Radio Programme

Introducing the programme which is going to run on Radio Zimbabwe (formerly Radio 2) radio presenters Elsie Majapelo and Perfect Thlongwane said the programme will be called Zvirongwa and will be broadcast every day profiling Mugabe’s ‘national development utterances’.

“This programme is going to bring the President closer to the people so that they appreciate him. This week we are going to review his Mutare statement which he made during the party’s conference which ended at the weekend, “said the presenters on Wednesday.

ZBC has been criticised for being biased towards Zanu (PF) party at the expense of the two Movement for Democratic Change (MDC) factions led by Morgan Tsvangirai and Arthur Mutambara who are also part of the unity government formed in 2009.

This year the ZBC authorised the playing of Zanu (PF) party jingles which denounce MDC.
