Mugabe’s daughter appointed to Zimbabwe censor board, to regulate social media

President Robert Mugabe’s daughter Bona Chikore has been appointed to the Zimbabwe board of censors, state media reported Wednesday, the latest family member to take up an official role.


The board “faces the colossal task of regulating public entertainment in the digital age,” the state-owned Herald newspaper said, raising fears of further restrictions on criticism of Mugabe’s regime.

The newspaper said the board would play “a critical role in controlling and regulating the media and film industry and examining any article or public entertainment submitted to it”.

Chikore’s mother Grace is head of the ruling ZANU-PF party’s women league, and is seen by some observers as a potential successor when the 93-year-old president dies.

She has three children with Mugabe. Chikore, 27, who was educated in Hong Kong, is the eldest, while two sons are still in school.

Mugabe’s nephews Patrick Zhuwao and Walter Chidhakwa are ministers of youth and mining respectively, while several other relatives hold government positions.

Chikore’s husband Simba was recently appointed the chief operating officer of the national carrier Air Zimbabwe.

In 2004, Zimbabwe’s censors banned a play called “Superpatriot and the Morons” about an autocratic ruler kept in power by a small clique of allies and brutal security forces.

The new censors board is chaired by former culture minister Aeneas Chigwedere and includes Regis Chikowore, deputy to Mugabe’s spokesman, police spokeswoman Charity Charamba and a traditional chief.

“The constitution of Zimbabwe has a provision for freedom of artistic expression,” The Herald quoted home affairs minister Ignatius Chombo as saying in an address to the censors.

“In today’s environment where there is heightened scrutiny by members of the public, internet and social media use, you are going to face many challenges.”

Many Zimbabweans use social media platforms to circumvent tough media and security laws to express opposition to Mugabe, who has ruled since 1980.

    I think what you posted was very logical. But, what about
    this? suppose you added a little content? I ain’t
    saying your information isn’t good., but suppose you added a headline to maybe grab people’s attention? I mean Mugabe's daughter
    appointed to Zimbabwe censor board, to regulate social media – OfofoZone is kinda vanilla.
    You ought to glance at Yahoo’s front page and watch how they create article headlines
    to grab viewers to open the links. You might add a related
    video or a related pic or two to get people interested about everything’ve written. Just my opinion, it would bring your posts
    a little livelier.

    Thanks for the ideas you have provided here. One more thing I would like to mention is that computer memory requirements generally increase along with other advancements in the know-how. For instance, any time new generations of processor chips are brought to the market, there’s usually a matching increase in the scale demands of both the laptop memory in addition to hard drive space. This is because the program operated by means of these processors will inevitably surge in power to leverage the new technological know-how.

    My programmer is trying to persuade me to move to .net from PHP.

    I have always disliked the idea because of the costs. But he’s tryiong none the less.
    I’ve been using Movable-type on numerous websites for about a year and am concerned
    about switching to another platform. I have heard good
