Youths who took part in belated Day of the African Child commemorations in Mufakose organised by ZBC’s Radio Zimbabwe say the station is providing a platform for them to access key information on their rights through its programming.
The media has a role to educate, inform as well as entertain and Radio Zimbabwe certainly got the thumps up from the attendees who said the station is giving them key information regards their rights and other aspects related to their well being.
Radio Zimbabwe’s partners, Plan International and Justice for Children Trust said they joined the ZBC station given its wide reach hence their message of ensuring that the rights of children are recognised will be heard by all Zimbabweans.
Radio Zimbabwe station manager, Mr Albert Chekayi said the station is geared to providing a mix of programmes catering for all Zimbabweans and that the initiative is part of efforts to ensure that children are afforded opportunities they deserve.
Radio Zimbabwe road shows have proven to be a hit with many Zimbabweans and the crowds had the opportunity to mix and mingle with the stations stars such as Richmond Siyakurima, Sifelani Chikwape, Elsie Mojapelo, Thabani Gambiza, Hazvinei Sakarombe and Season Ndundu, Lionel Mkandla among many others.
