AbeZimbabwe Association of Community Radio Stations (ZACRAS) bona bakhala ngokuthi sekuleminyaka engamatshumi amathathu lesithupha ilizwe lithole uzibuse kodwa akukabi ngitsho lowodwa umsakazo wezigaba osuphiwe imvumo yokusakaza.

Intatheli yeZimbabwe ezimeleyo kweleSouth Africa uStanley Karombo uthi kuyamangalisa ukubona uhulumende ephitshekile ngokwenqabela ukwethulwa kwezindaba.

Embusweni okhululekileyo ngeqiniso akusiwo msebenzi kahulumende ukutsho ukuthi ngubani okufuze athole imvumo yokusakaza kumbe ukungayitholi. Kungumsebenzi womphakathi ukuzitsholo ukuthi umsakazo siyawudinga loba hatshi. Umsebenzi kahulumende yikuncedisa ukugcwaliseka kwezifiso zikazulu nxa efuna ukusungula imisakazo eZimbabwe.

Sesike sakubona kusenzakala ebantwini abanengi abafana labo Conti Mhlanga. Uhulumende weZimbabwe yena kufanele azihluphe ngokuthi abantu kumele bathole ilungelo lokuthi bakhulume umbono wabo as long bengathethisi muntu, bengephuli umthetho.

Inhlanganiso ye Amnesty International ithi eZimbabwe inhlanganiso zezindaba ezizimeleyo zithwaliswe nzima nguhulumende. Ingcitshi kwezombusazwe umnumnzana Pedzisai Ruhanya uthi isisusa sonke senhlupho ezibhekane leZimbabwe ikakhulu kwezamalungelo oluntu, ngumkhuba wokuthi wonke ophiwe isihlalo usefuna ukufela khona, okwenza azibiyele ngameva ukuze angakhitshwa.

Uhlupho lokufuna ukubusa kokuphela alutholakali kuphela kuZanu PF, lukhona enhlanganisweni zikazulu lemabandleni aphikisayo. Lobumba inhlanganiso kamasingcwabisane ufuna ukufa layo. AKusuye yedwa uMugabe ofuna ukufela esikhundleni sekungumkhuba eZimbabwe.

Intathelizona zithi ziyesabela ukuthi imithetho ephakathi kokubunjwa nguhulumende elawula ezokusetshenziswa kwe internet,izakupha uhulumende amanye amandla okuvimba ukwethulwa kwemibiko ngokukhululekileyo abantu besebenzisa ofacebook, WhatsApp, Twitter lamakheli ebulenjini.
