MDC Chamisa Doesn't Give Us Their Diaries: The Herald Justifies Biased Political Coverage
The Herald’s Editor-in-Chief Caesar Zvayi said the opposition. particularly the Nelson Chamisa led MDC-T faction does not give them their diaries hence they cannot cover their political rallies.
Zvayi said this while briefing the European Union Election Observer Mission media analyst Mr Javier Gutierrez on the operations of Zimpapers’ flagship with regards to elections. He said all political parties and presidential candidates were free to approach The Herald for interviews or request coverage for their rallies. Said Zvayi:
We are open to all contestants, whether Zanu-PF or MDC; all parties that successfully filed at the Nomination Court. All we want from them (political parties) is their schedule and then we deploy our reporters, which we have already been doing. The challenge we are facing is that opposition parties — and by opposition I don’t mean only MDC Chamisa — don’t give us their diaries. We are fully aware of our obligations under the Electoral Act and the requirements of the Zimbabwe Electoral Commission.Feedback
