Propaganda and public opinion in Zimbabwe

Bratton, M. , Chikwana, A. and Sithole, T. (2005). Propaganda and public opinion in Zimbabwe, Journal of Contemporary African Studies,23(1), 77 – 108

 This article discusses the so called “squeeze on the media” and the means by which the Zimbabwan government uses propaganda and gives their opponents limited or no oppurtunity to speak. The researchers argue that propaganda is a very powerful tool to convince and persuade the public. Their view is interesting in regard to my article in the way the ruling government is maintaining power.
