Harare – President Emmerson Mnangagwa has rallied Zimbabwean media to put the national interest first and contribute to the attainment of Vision 2030 by promoting development.
Zimbabwe’s leader said this was a responsibility to be shared by both public and private media in the interest of championing nation building for the common good.
The President made the call after last week’s swearing in of new members of the Zimbabwe Media Commission at State House in Harare, where he urged the new commissioners to drive the country’s development agenda.
“Yesterday, I was pleased to preside over the swearing in of the Zimbabwe Media Commission. It is my fervent expectation that the newly sworn-in commissioners will ensure that our media fraternity shifts their paradigm to give supremacy to our national interest, identity and pride,” said President Mnangagwa.
“Our media, regardless of ownership, must be a vehicle that gives impetus and momentum to our national development agenda as we accelerate achievement of Vision 2030 and entrench constitutionalism, democracy and rule of law.
“All types of media should play their part in nation building, and the inculcation of unity, love and honest hard work.”
