Happening Now: What is a community radio station?

Join the conversation with @donald_mukota and @ZacrasOnline- @johnchirinda and Pelargia Kapuya tonight on the #DeepDive on @capitalkfm

#mediareformsnow #AIPPAandBSAMustFall
@donald_mukota @ZacrasOnline @JohnChirinda @capitalkfm Chirinda says the community radio initiatives are not breaking the law, they are however initiatives in a state of preparedness to be licensed to become radio stations. These initiatives are alternative methods to share information with communities.

@PatsakaCRI @ZacrasOnline
@donald_mukota @ZacrasOnline @JohnChirinda @capitalkfm @PatsakaCRI Communities should be primarily responsible for setting up radio stations. Govt is not meant to be a player in the running radio stations but regulators- Kapuya says

@donald_mukota @ZacrasOnline @JohnChirinda @capitalkfm @PatsakaCRI @InfoMinZW @energymutodi @euinzim @MAZ_Zim @ZimMediaReview John Chirinda: while we are happy with the existence of @ZBCNewsonline, they do not have the capacity to cover all areas. When was the last time you heard a Tonga speaking person giving a view or opinion on ZBC?

@donald_mukota @ZacrasOnline @JohnChirinda @capitalkfm @PatsakaCRI @InfoMinZW @energymutodi @euinzim @MAZ_Zim @ZimMediaReview @ZBCNewsonline @rashweatm @forfreemedia @RadioVop Conversations around community radio before the dispensation were anti-community radio. Currently the conversations included pronouncements to prioritize community radio licensing. - Kapuya
@donald_mukota @ZacrasOnline @JohnChirinda @capitalkfm @PatsakaCRI @InfoMinZW @energymutodi @euinzim @MAZ_Zim @ZimMediaReview @ZBCNewsonline @rashweatm @forfreemedia @RadioVop Allocation of frequencies should be made available in the public domain despite the fact that Zimbabwe says it recognizes a three tier broadcasting system- Kapuya from @ZacrasOnline says

@donald_mukota @ZacrasOnline @JohnChirinda @capitalkfm @PatsakaCRI @InfoMinZW @energymutodi @euinzim @MAZ_Zim @ZimMediaReview @ZBCNewsonline @rashweatm @forfreemedia @RadioVop People cannot invest in a dream that they do not see coming into fruition. We cannot speak of viability when licensing has not been availed- Chirinda from @PatsakaCRI says during the conversation around community radio on @capitalkfm

@donald_mukota @ZacrasOnline @JohnChirinda @capitalkfm @PatsakaCRI @InfoMinZW @energymutodi @euinzim @MAZ_Zim @ZimMediaReview @ZBCNewsonline @rashweatm @forfreemedia @RadioVop Can an individual who is viable run a community radio station or should it be a group of individuals? - a question from one of the platforms

@donald_mukota @ZacrasOnline @JohnChirinda @capitalkfm @PatsakaCRI @InfoMinZW @energymutodi @euinzim @MAZ_Zim @ZimMediaReview @ZBCNewsonline @rashweatm @forfreemedia @RadioVop Community radios would enable people within a community to discuss, inform on issues happening within their area. a national broadcaster or a commercial radio station may not find that worth covering, but a community radio station would find this important- Kapuya
@donald_mukota @ZacrasOnline @JohnChirinda @capitalkfm @PatsakaCRI @InfoMinZW @energymutodi @euinzim @MAZ_Zim @ZimMediaReview @ZBCNewsonline @rashweatm @forfreemedia @RadioVop "Is there even a board at BAZ? Institutional processes to facilitate calling of licenses don't exist. Govt should show commitment by being serious on governance issues".- @Sizzle76 says via Facebook

@donald_mukota @ZacrasOnline @JohnChirinda @capitalkfm @PatsakaCRI @InfoMinZW @energymutodi @euinzim @MAZ_Zim @ZimMediaReview @ZBCNewsonline @rashweatm @forfreemedia @RadioVop @Sizzle76 Govt should be there to provide a platform as a regulator says Zhou, Kuwadzana.

Challenges to do with vending in undesignated areas in Kuwadzana is a concern that may not be addressed at the national level. Can we be allowed to have our own conversations!

@donald_mukota @ZacrasOnline @JohnChirinda @capitalkfm @PatsakaCRI @InfoMinZW @energymutodi @euinzim @MAZ_Zim @ZimMediaReview @ZBCNewsonline @rashweatm @forfreemedia @RadioVop @Sizzle76 We are not saying that community radio stations should operate willy nilly. Guidance is needed- John Chirinda says during the discussion on community radio stations on @capitalkfm
