Zimbabwe News and other magazines

Zimbabwe News

Zimbabwe News was a magazine that was first produced by the Zimbabwean African National Union (ZANU) in 1969 when the movement was in its early stages. At that time the organisation (in Britain) was lobbying the then Labour Government of Harold Wilson to reverse its stance on the Unilateral Declaration of Independence (UDI) made by the Ian Smith regime in November 1965.

When the struggle within Rhodesia took on the aspects of a fully fledged National Liberation War, starting with guerrilla tactics and then progressing to more ambitious attacks, the magazine kept the world informed of events in the country.

After Independence in 1980 the magazine became the official organ of the ruling party of Zimbabwe.
