Shamu was last week given a three-week ultimatum to reconstitute the Broadcasting Authority of Zimbabwe (BAZ), the Zimbabwe Broadcasting Corporation (ZBC) and the Mass Media Trust boards. These boards have been an ongoing issue since the Global Political Agreement (GPA) was signed in late 2008, with ZANU PF refusing to allow real media reforms.

Speaking at a press conference at his Munhumutapa offices in Harare last Friday, Prime Minister Morgan Tsvangirai reiterated this, by stating that it was Shamu’s ZANU PF led ministry that was refusing to implement reforms which would help to open up Zimbabwe’s airwaves.
