Zim licences four private papers

The new Zimbabwe Media Commission has given licences to four private daily newspapers.

According to the Commission only four applications were received and all of them were successful.

I think this is a welcome development and especially for a country where there has been no private daily newspaper for the last seven years.

The new licenses were also granted to publish the Daily News, Daily Gazette, Newsday and the Mail.

In a country of such high unemployment this will create so many jobs which is good.

What I would like to see is the opening of the airwaves. While there has been private daily papers before, there has never been a private radio station for example operating from Zimbabwe.
