The reporter of the former President Robert Mugabe Ms Judith Makwanya has died. Makwanya was admitted into a hospital on Monday with a medical emergency. She was a committed media practitioner and an inspiring voice.
Ms Judith Makwanya was the ZBC diplomatic correspondent and challenged crude gender barriers in Zimbabwe’s broadcasting industry.
The Ministry of Information, Publicity and Broadcasting confirmed Makwanya’s death but did not give all the details. The Information Ministry on Twitter said “Government learns with sadness of the untimely passing on of Diplomatic Correspondent Ms Judith Makwanya. Judith served her country with distinction and was one of the journalists placed on the sanctions list which became a Roll of Honor for Patriots. May Her Soul Rest in Peace”.
