francis nhema 08-11-10 ed.jpgThe government has been advised to intensify the spread of information on environment in the region as research reveals that most communities have little knowledge on the new climate change trends.

The call was made in Harare by visiting environmental journalists who paid a courtesy call on the Minister of Environment and Natural Resources Management, Cde Francis Nhema.

The Environmental Journalists Association of Tanzania and Kenya were invited by the newly formed Zimbabwe Environmental Journalist Association –ZEJA– to promote the writing and broadcasting of stories that help to protect the environment.

Minister Nhema said journalists need to write more stories that educate the population as the environment supports socio-economic activities in a country.

The environmental journalists organisation agreed to form a regional organisation code named Environmental Journalists of Eastern and Southern Africa that will oversee problems faced by environmental journalists.

"I am here for as long as I am still sane, with good memory and will power. I thank God for giving me extra strength. I still have a bright mind; I still have will. I know our history more than you do. I know the wishes of those heroes and those who lie elsewhere more than you do. I know the wishes of the chiefs, dead and alive." - At 6th Zanu PF National People's Congress, 2014.
