The Zimbabwean Newspaper: Voiceless

Giving a voice to Zimbabweans

Published on Mar 08, 2011

Editor's Pick

The Zimbabwean newspaper is raising awareness of the continuing brutalities in Zimbabwe (which continue despite the media spotlight being currently on the troubles in North Africa) with a major billboard campaign in South African cities.

Entitled The Voiceless, the posters feature real-life victims of Robert Mugabe's dictatorial regime, taken by photojournalists whose images are suppressed within Zimbabwe itself, adding a map of Zimbabwe as an empty speech bubble. They direct viewers to a website where they can read more about the photographs, hear eyewitness accounts and locate the images in context on a satellite map. The images are also available to view on a Flickr page.

Agency TBWA is also working on social media efforts, with a blog to be launched later in the week that will include live correspondents from Harare. Its previous work for the newspaper has highlighted Zimbabwe's problems with inflation.
