CHIREDZI – ZIMBABWE’S Lowveld has a new media voice.

This includes maginalised areas of Chikombedzi, Tshovani, Gona re Zhou National parks, Sango Border-post, Save Conservancies and the neighbouring Chipinge district in Manicaland.
“This historic media project will give voice to the voiceless, including tourism sector, agri-business, local IT vendors, entrepreneurs, investment and general public voices,” said Savious-Parker Kwinika, who is Centre for African Journalists (CAJ) News Africa Chief Executive Officer.
The Lowveld Post is a subsidiary of CAJ News Africa, the South Africa headquartered award winning Pan African news agency.
“For decades, the Lowveld had no media voice, so, as son of the district (Chiredzi, Masvingo province), I decided to give voice to my own local community so that their daily stories, successes, challenges, business, entertainment, culture and sport are always heard nationwide and globally,” Kwinika said.
Among beats the publication will cover include farming (AgriBusiness), tourism, wildlife, environment, technology, arts, culture and sport.
