    The private electronic media carried 20 reports on the constitutional referendum, held last Saturday.

    Of the 20 stories, 12 appeared on private radio stations. The remaining eight featured on the national broadcaster, ZBC [ZTV (six) and Spot FM (two)]. Fourteen of the 20 stories comprised congratulatory messages from regional observers and sections of domestic civil society and the international community who believed the referendum was ‘credible” despite a few reported irregularities.

    Three stories were updates by the Zimbabwe Electoral Commission (ZEC) on the counting process, including its announcement that the results would be out today.

    The other three were updates on the arrest of four MDC officials and human rights lawyers Beatrice Mtetwa, which the private electronic media linked to the just-ended referendum.
