The Kamativi Transmitter site in Matabeleland North has been fully digitalised and here the delegation led by Min Mutsvangwa is shown how the picture quality and signal strength would look like.

Digitalisation will enable the country to host 24 new high definition channels. Zimbabwe claims that it is Open for Media Business under the new dispensation. The airwaves are in the process of being opened.

The Hwange transmitter will cover a radius of 60km. Construction of the transmitter began in 2017. Matabeleland North Province has three existing transmitters. Four more transmitters are being erected in Hwange, Nkayi, Tsholotsho and Hwange.

Minister Monica Mutsvangwa, her Deputy Energy Mutodi and Nick Mangwana handed over radios and hampers to 17 Chiefs in Binga District after touring the completed Binga Transmitter Site. The Minister is on a tour of progress on digitalisation in Mat North.

Meanwhile, the construction of the Digitalisation Infrastructure continues. The Chikombedzi Transmission Tower Site is still at the foundation level. When complete, the Tower is expected to cover the large parts of Chiredzi South an East, areas and communities that have no record of ever receiving both radio and television signal.

The upgrading of the Magumire Tower in Mukwasine is 99% complete. Radio signal reception in Mkwasine, Triangle, Save and Chiredzi urban has improved a lot.
