Media expert and political commentator Pedzisai Ruhanya has lamented that the private and state media in Zimbabwe have been captured by the warring factions in the ruling Zanu PF.

The remarks come at a time when the media is dominated by news concerning the wars in the ruling party almost on daily bases in which these items are given more prominence than any other issues of paramount importance to citizens.

"The private and the state media in Zimbabwe are captured by the warring factions in Zanu PF. Surely the story of Zimbabwe at this moment cant be binary; either Lacoste or G40 without any shame across the board," Ruhanya said.

"There is no analysis in all the mainstream media as these factions of an authoritarian regime are treated as righteous. Pres Mugabe was very correct to suggest that Zanu PF controls the private press because of money. Its a nightmare to read the private press with their uncritical factional rubbish packaged as truths."

He said get it here that none of these factions will redeem our country, none of them is holy, none is democratic but all are evil and collectively responsible for economic and political decay marked by massive corruption.

"The private media is guilty of omission and commission. A counter NARRATIVE/COUNTER HEGEMONY is needed!" he said.
