The Media Alliance of Zimbabwe on Wednesday held its one day annual conference in Harare where participants discussed various issues including the new constitution, media laws, freedom of expression and the future of the media in Zimbabwe in the next five years under the incoming Zanu PF administration, among other issues.

Held under the theme ‘Zimbabwe’s Media: The Next Five Years, Democratisation and Expansion’, the conference was attended by representatives from Zanu PF and the MDC, journalists, and representatives from non-governmental organisations, among others.

Media Alliance of Zimbabwe coordinator Patience Zirima said the conference was a success as it tackled issues affecting the media in Zimbabwe.

“The conference also came out with really concrete ideas of how the media should be moving forward in the next five years,” Zimbira added.
