Zimbabwe Media Commission chairperson, Dr Tafataona Mahoso, said the conduct of the "journalists" not only showed serious contempt and disrespect for President Mugabe, but also exposed Nigerian complicit in the whole media stunt.
The same Nigeria is the one that together with South Africa supported a UN resolution for the bombardment and invasion of Libya," said Dr Mahoso. Dr Mahoso said the new Nigerian administration had a lot to do in terms of projecting the real character of Nigeria, not the one associated with deceit and collaboration with regime change agents.

Zimbabwe Media Commission chief executive Dr Tafataona Mahoso said the private media, after realising that using the MDC formations to divide Zanu-PF had failed, was now trying to pit Zanu-PF members against each other.

The current untenable regulatory framework is evidenced by the fact that the ZMC's chief executive officer, Dr Tafataona Mahoso, is also the Chairperson of BAZ.
The Independent Communications Authority of South Africa (ICASA), is hailed as a model independent regulator on the continent.

TM: Turning to the Broadcasting Authority of Zimbabwe, some people have raised concerns over the appointment of Dr Tafataona Mahoso as chairperson considering that he is also the chief executive officer of the Zimbabwe Media Commission.
Is there no conflict of interest? What was the Government's rationale for making the appointment? GC: I have never regarded that as an administrative question. I have always regarded it as a political proposition. Dr Mahoso is a vigorous social commentator. He also happens to wield very strong political positions and to a certain extent he is my Siamese twin. I also have the same weakness. When you are that kind of a character you make very strong friends and you also draw strong opponents. Really it has not been about Mahoso having two roles; it has been about two roles belonging to Mahoso the person. Quite the opposite, the very arguments which are said to disqualify Dr Mahoso, qualify for that post. But that is to be polemical. Dr Mahoso is a trainer apart from being an expert in public communication. We wanted a licensing authority to be under a mind that is well-grounded in terms of the requirements of the media but we also wanted a person with requisite maturity, a person who would be sensitive to what in fact had become a political question. Licensing in Zimbabwe has become a political question and we wanted a mind with the facility to encompass the complexity of the political question. The CEO of BAZ is an engineer, and rightly so because broadcasting beyond being a values issue is an engineering proposition. So you have to create some kind of complementarity between the engineer who is the CEO and the board which is editorially alive. We find those qualities in Dr Mahoso and his colleagues on the board. Where I find the question a bit dishonest is in that the expectation that we have from certain political quarters of a Zimbabwe Media Commission which is also in charge of broadcasting So that means the principle of someone working for ZMC having something to do with broadcasting might not be in contention. What may be in contention is the incumbent and as a public servant I do not start from the premise of hates and likes. I start from the premise of competences. Get it from me, Dr Mahoso has served us very well and that is why there is all this massive progress that has happened against scepticism. In a matter of months from now Zimbabwe will become a Tower of Babel. There will so many radio stations, hopefully for every city apart from the already existing ones. We hope the applicants are serious enough and we are confident BAZ under Mahoso's leadership will take decisions that are correct.
