Viewers must desert propaganda broadcasters

I CALL upon all fair-minded citizens to continue with the boycott of the State broadcaster, ZBC and State-controlled print media, until something sensible is done to at least show a bit of respect to the long-suffering taxpayers.

It is this broadcaster that has prolonged the suffering of the people by clearly supporting an out-of-favour Zanu-PF regime that is known for greed and taking the country's economy to the dogs.

What normal country has over 90% unemployment and it's not reported in the  public media, but propaganda is churned out incessantly?

I applaud Zimbabweans for having long abandoned this organisation in favour of foreign and private media.

To make matters worse for the suffering people, ZBC licence inspectors visit our houses in the high-density suburbs.

They leave an invoice for television and radio licences demanding payment as if their programmes are from out of this world.

I would like to urge citizens to refuse to pay for radio and television licences.

By paying for the licences, we will be propelling the ruling Zanu-PF party's propaganda machinery.
