This fifteenth media monitoring report on the 2018 elections highlights trends in the Zimbabwean media’s performance in their coverage of the elections. The study assessed the level to which the media is fair and balanced in representing political players. The report covers issues reported by the media on the twenty-first day of the election period – 20 June 2018.
On the twenty-first day of the electoral period, there continues to be a challenge on the coverage of women and youth political actors in the electronic and print media. Issues that concern these two groups must also be given adequate coverage, as they are critical stakeholders in the upcoming elections.
It is commendable that the electronic media is now producing more current affairs programs that give coverage to political actors. This is a step in the right direction as the country heads towards the 2018 elections.
