Exiled Zimbabwean journalists launch website


LONDON - The Association of Zimbabwean Journalists in the United Kingdom (AZJ-UK) has launched a website www.zimbabwejournalists.com in a bid to bring together exiled journalists and other media practitioners outside the country. The organisation has 40 experienced journalists

among its ranks and intends to help journalists in Zimbabwe expand the shrinking democratic space in the country. The website will provide an outlet for journalists at home and abroad to get their stories published. The government, using repressive legislation, has shut down four newspapers and denied broadcasting licences to several media groups. This, the association believes, has created a need for a more diverse and vibrant mass media. The Association says it is independent of any political party and will work together with fellow colleagues who are scattered around the globe and have been rendered voiceless. – SW Radio Africa
