Zimbabwe’s News24 to launch soon on SW
Zimbabwe’s Information Minister Sikhanyiso Ndlovu has said that the country’s new international shortwave radio station, News24, will start broadcasting before independence celebrations on 18 April. The new radio station will be based in Gweru, and should be available to audiences both in and outside Zimbabwe. “There will be a revolutionary development in the media. We should be able to tell our own story,” Ndlovu is quoted as saying. The Herald says the government is spending US$35 million on the project.
