    The week's top stories

    The launch of the long-awaited constitutional outreach consultation exercise after months of bickering among the coalition parties was the highlight of the week in all the media.

    The government-run media, however, simply endorsed this development as evidence of progress in the implementation of the Global Political Agreement (GPA) without questioning Zimbabweans' ability to fully express themselves amid reports of intimidation by ZANU PF supporters, especially in rural areas. The private media continued to highlight the implications of this problem, alongside inadequate funding, logistical hitches and the ongoing information drought, reported to be more prevalent in rural areas.

    The operations of the inclusive government, particularly efforts to normalize relations with the West, and the controversial decision by Kimberley Process monitor Abbey Chikane to certify Chiadzwa's diamonds, sparking international condemnation, competed for attention too.
