Masvingo leading the way in TV content production – Charamba
Masvingo was leading in terms of good content production, with promising work from Bulawayo, Binga and Lupane, with response from independent producers in Mutare rather sluggish
Those are the words of Information, Media and Broadcasting Services Permanent Secretary Mr George Charamba as quoted in the state broadcaster ZBC.
Charamba said so in talking about the deplorable pace at which content was being produced by local providers.
Focus is to reach out to growth points and broaden the content production catchment and stimulate the creative industry in order to get healthier and put content which will fill up the space.
Local content producers say they are skeptical of the state broadcaster’s ability or willingness to pay for content after work was done.
Charamba says once the infrastructure for digitalisation was in place set top boxes would be issued to the public for use.
