HARARE – The MDC’s Information and Publicity department this week launched The Voice of Real Change, an audio service that will give the people of Zimbabwe a new and exciting platform to know what is happening in the country and in their party.
A first by any political party in the country and in the region,the MDC will provide an audio platform that will herald a new era in communication at a time when the socalled public broadcaster, the ZBC, has shamefully become a conveyor-belt of Zanu PF propaganda. Under the new communication platform, Zimbabweans will call a set of cellular phone numbers. The numbers will cut and the call-back facility will enable the radio system to call back to listeners who will then receive guidelines that will lead them to exciting options.
This unique and exciting platform, which will offer Zimbabweans listening options in English, Ndebele and Shona, will give callers options to listen to a daily news round-up and President Morgan Tsvangirai’s weekly message. Other menu options include the MDC’s position on the Constitution-making
process, party events, and a feed-back platform where Zimbabweans can leave their messages to the party.
An official in the Information and Publicity department said the partyfelt it was necessary for the people of Zimbabwe to know of current events and one way of doing this was in having an audio service that was cheap and easily available to every cellphone or landline user. In keeping with its Party of Excellence status, the MDC’s Information Department early this year opened a regalia shop at the party’s headquarters, Harvest House that sells an array of party regalia and paraphernalia.The shop has proved to be a hit among MDC supporters and the general public.
