#13: Legends in African Journalism (episode 5)- Hopewell Chin’ono

Zimbabwe is scheduled to hold elections on August 23, 2023, against a backdrop of egregious and restrictive legislation, which analysts predict will in part contribute to the potentially volatile and conflict-ridden (pre)election period that will unfold across both online and offline platforms. In our latest iSPEAK podcast episode, host Gwen Lister engages in a conversation with Hopewell Chin’ono (Daddy Hope), an acclaimed Zimbabwean journalist, to delve into the present state of affairs in his country. The discussion focuses on democracy, media and human rights, shedding light – among others – on the anticipated challenges arising from the recent passage of the Patriot Bill by the Zimbabwean parliament.
