The Zimbabwean chapter of the Media Institute of Southern Africa (MISA) has recognised Mail & Guardian owner, Trevor Ncube, for his contribution to press freedom in Zimbabwe.

MISA Zimbabwe’s senior programmes officer, Nyasha Nyahuku, says that the organisation presented Ncube with the award for his role in providing Zimbabweans with alternative platforms for critical, alternative views on social, economic and political issues.
