Zimbabwe set to license 10 new radio stations

Monday 15 April 2019 | 15:01 CET | News

Zimbabwe said it will issue community radio broadcasting licences to 10 private operators as part of its reform agenda to open the airwaves in the growing industry, with foreign players expected to share 20 percent of the market, reports StarFM. 

Secretary for Information, Publicity and Broadcasting Services Nick Mangwana said his ministry has budgeted USD 98,000 to support the initiative. The move, apart from creating a competitive environment in the broadcasting sector, is in line with the country's constitutional provisions for media variety. There are eight community radio stations operating in Zimbabwe at present.
