Zimbabwe – There is no freedom after expression

Memorable quote from Davison Maruziva, the editor of the Independent Zimbabwean newspaper, in the IHT today,

Davison Maruziva says there’s plenty of freedom of expression in Zimbabwe. Problem is: “There is no freedom after expression.” link

The article goes on to discuss the state of the media in the beleagured nation and quotes Zimbabwe Information Minister Sikhanyiso Ndlovu who is adamant that the government is committed to a free press,

“I am an ally of the press. We are proponents of press freedom,” he told The Associated Press on Tuesday. “We are waiting for an all inclusive government to be in place. You can’t just have an agreement and say that is the law.” link
