The Zimbabwean Denies Plans To Launch A Daily Paper

Harare, – The Zimbabwean Editor Wilf Mbanga has denied plans to launch a daily newspaper in Zimbabwe, contrary to a story carried out by the media this week.

It also denied it had launched a sports newspaper, Football Zimbabwe, saying: "We did not launch Football Zimbabwe – its published by a Botswana company. They simply advertise in The Zimbabwean."

Mbanga, who was the Editor in chief and Chief Executive Officer for the Community Newspaper Group (CNG), said they did not print newspapers in the UK and fly them to Zimbabwe as erroneously noted by the story.

"We print the southern African edition in South Africa where we have a registered company."
