MANICALAND now has a third operational radio station after hundreds of people from different walks of life gathered for the Chimanimani FM official launch today.

Chimanimani FM community radio station, which is accessible at 100.0 on the FM dial, comes after the establishment of Zimpapers owned Diamond FM and another community radio station Nyangani FM.

Speaking during the official launch of Chimanimani FM, Information, Publicity and Broadcasting Services Minister Cde Monica Mutsvangwa warned staff and the community against perpetrating hate speech through the community radio stations.

“Let us remind each other that these radio stations are not meant to propagate hate speech. Remember there are laws that govern the content and operations of what comes out on air. Therefore. We need these radio stations to promote development and enhance our disaster preparedness mechanisms rather than promote hate and division among us,” said Minister Mutsvangwa.

Several partners that delivered solidarity messages during the official launch, that include Zimpapers, UNOPS, UNICEF, Broadcasting Authority of Zimbabwe (BAZ), ZBC and Zimbabwe Media Commission (ZMC), among many others, commended Government for opening up media space in the country.
