About MISA-Zimbabwe
The Zimbabwe Chapter of MISA (MISA-Zimbabwe) is part of the larger, regional Media
Institute of Southern Africa (MISA). The Media Institute of Southern Africa (MISA) is a nongovernmental organization with national chapters in 11 of the Southern Africa Development
Community (SADC) countries.
The regional body was officially launched in 1992 and focuses primarily on the need to
promote free, independent and diverse pluralistic media, as envisaged in the 1991 Windhoek
Declaration on Promoting Free and Independent Press. MISA-Zimbabwe has been in existence
since 1995. Advancements in technology have expanded MISA-Zimbabwe’s work to include
the protection and promotion of online rights such as the right to freedom of expression,
access to information, and the right to privacy.
