2018 Post Election Brief


This short brief highlights media related flashpoints that occurred during the 2018 electoral period. It provides a summary of events that directly and indirectly violated media freedoms in the country.

After the 2013 elections, the African Union Election Observation Mission (‘AUEOM’) made recommendations on how to improve the state of media in Zimbabwe. These recommendations complement and give life to the media rights enshrined in Zimbabwe’s constitution gazetted shortly before the 2013 elections. However, Zimbabwe never implemented any of the AUEOM recommendations, and the 2018 elections were held in an environment that had no meaningful media law and policy reforms.
