Zimbabwe: Incorrect Statement in the Herald

press release

The MDC is appalled by the blatant yellow journalism and gross misinformation in the Herald of today (11/12/12) that the MDC National Executive met in Bindura at the weekend purportedly to clear internal problems over the role of principals in the Constitution making process.

For the record, no such meeting by the Executive took place in Bindura since the President was out of the country on a visit to Kenya on official business.

Secondly there has never been any internal problem regarding the issue alluded to in the Herald to warrant an Executive meeting.

The MDC implores the Zanu PF mouthpiece, the Herald and its journalists, to verify their stories first before publishing. The unprofessional conduct as exuded by the Herald is certainly not consistent with ethics guiding the conduct of journalists and is therefore unacceptable.

The good thing about the people of Zimbabwe is that they will never be swayed by Zanu PF or their propaganda mouthpieces into believing their lies. Zimbabweans have soared way above petty politicking and have diverted their attention to the real issues of pushing for a new constitution to be nationally adopted.
