10 Feb 2017 – Zimbabwe’s fastest growing regional newspaper; TellZim News has this week opened offices in Mutare.
The move was necessitated by the newspaper management’s failure to resist the calls by the people of Mutare to have the newspaper on their streets.
TellZim News editor Passmore Kuzipa said the quality of stories published in the paper has become the major marketing tool which has seen people from faraway places calling for the paper to be sold in their own areas.
“The people of Mutare have all the reasons to smile. The newspaper of the people is now on their door steps – they now have the opportunity to tell Zimbabwe their own stories,” said Kuzipa.
In Manicaland, the paper will be sold in the city of Mutare, Rusape, Penhalonga, Nyanga, Chimanimani, Chipinge, Birchnough Bridge and various growth points in the province.
TellZim News has deployed Lloyd Shunje to run the Mutare office with immediate effect.
Shunje is a holder of Honours in Media and Cultural Studies degree from Great Zimbabwe University (GZU).
Currently, the newspaper is found in all the seven districts of Masvingo, Beitbridge, Zvishavane, Chivhu, Mvuma, Gweru, Murambinda and Harare.
Apart from publishing the hard copy, TellZim News also runs a vibrant website, www.tellzim.com as well as a social media desk which produces short videos, podcast, bulk sms as well as live blogging during important events.
With less than two years on the market, TellZim News has already won several awards due to the quality of work it publishes.news
