Speaker of the National Assembly Jacob Mudenda has rejected Media Alliance Zimbabwe’s petition to summon Twitter user Tinoedza Dzimwe over cyber bullying.
Tinoedza Dzimwe who is believed to be George Charamba has been in the past months cyber bullying journalists on Twitter.
The Speaker said the petition is inadmissible.
“Petition from Media Alliance Zimbabwe requesting Parliament to summon the owner of the Twitter account Tinoedza Dzimwe over cyber bullying and threats against journalists on social media. The petition was deemed inadmissible and the petitioners were informed accordingly,” Mudenda.
The media in Zimbabwe has become under threat as the country draws closer to the 2023 general elections. However this is despite the fact that media plays an important role in informing people about elections processes.
