SW Radio Africa is closing down

Independent radio as viewed by the state controlled Herald newspaper

It is with regret that SW Radio Africa announces that it is closing down. We recently stopped our shortwave transmissions but have continued to provide broadcasts via our website and other formats, but these too will cease.

We’d like to thank the organisations and individuals who have supported us for the past 13 years and the contributors to our programs who have given so willingly of their time and expertise.

In particular we’d like to thank our listeners, who have shared their lives, hopes and dreams and helped us to tell the story of Zimbabwe’s sad decline to the world.

We hope that one day Zimbabwe finally has a government who understands that its sole responsibility is to ensure a safe, healthy, prosperous life for every man, woman and child in the country.

Our first broadcast was on 19th December 2001.
Our last broadcast will be on 10th August 2014.

It’s been a privilege.

    This has been a well deserved closure mate. It is now back to square one, reality sinking in and you leading a normal life like the rest of us without grands to prop up a radio station in a foreign land that never was supported by the majority of the Zimbabwean people.
    It is good riddance to bad rubbish mate.
