Magamba Network (Magamba) is a Zimbabwean creative media organisation which works at the cutting edge of culture, activism and human rights. Magamba, which means ‘heroes’ in Shona, was founded in 2007 as a non-profit Trust, with a mission to use creative forms of activism to open up democratic space and further the right to freedom of expression in Zimbabwe. Magamba has a range of initiatives aimed at young Zimbabweans under 35, including an alternative TV station showcasing popular political satire programming, a youth-led political reporting initiative undertaking live coverage of Parliament, an alternative multimedia platform, and is an incubator for young media start ups and campaigns.
