African journalists must spearhead continent’s development – Ambassador Musaka

JournalistsMs. Pavelyn Tendai Musaka, Zimbabwe Ambassador in Ghana, has asked African journalists to endeavour to project the development potentials of the continent for socio-economic growth.

The continent, she said, had huge business and investment opportunities, calling on journalists to feature prominently in their reportage these potentials to attract the needed networking and partnerships in utilizing those advantages.

Ambassador Musaka challenged journalists on the continent to be agents of change, saying it was their responsibility to do due diligence to reports, focusing on Africa to help change negative perceptions about the continent.

She was speaking to the Ghana News Agency (GNA) on the sidelines of a press conference in Kumasi, to brief the media on the 56th Zimbabwe International Trade Fair scheduled for Bulawayo in the latter part of this month.

The programme coincided with the inauguration of the Ghana-Zimbabwe Business Forum, a project that seeks to enhance bi-lateral trade relations between the two countries.

Ms. Musaka said Zimbabwe’s long-standing relations with Ghana would be sustained through trade and other exchange programmes, and therefore invited Ghanaian businessmen to take active part in the International Trade Fair to bring them benefits.

The Fair, she said, formed part  of activities marking Zimbabwe’s 35th Independence Anniversary Celebrations.

The programme had been designed to open the country’s economy to the outside world for investment.
