    The national broadcaster, ZBC, carried 380 news reports on various national issues in the period under review.

    The most popular issue was Zimbabwe’s constitution-making process and preparations for general elections, expected later this year.

    These issues were covered in 126 stories.

    Reports on party political activities came second with 83 reports, followed by business news with 75 stories.

    Other issues that also competed for ZBC’s attention included the death of Vice President John Nkomo (17) and deaths of other people related to senior ZANU PF officials (eight); local government issues (15); health (12); land and agriculture (11) and media issues (eight).

    The remaining 25 were on general issues, including other activities of the inclusive government. This is illustrated in Fig. 1.
