Democracy First Responders - Zimbabwe - Munya Dodo
COVID-19 threatens not only lives and livelihoods, but also governments and democratic institutions. The International Republican Institute (IRI) is profiling our partners and other leaders who have been the “first responders” in our global fight to protect and strengthen democracy. In this new series, Democracy First Responders, we spoke with an anti-corruption activist in Nepal, a journalist in Zimbabwe, a former government official in Georgia, and others to discuss their efforts to prevent democratic backsliding in the time of COVID-19. For the first episode of this series, our host Travis Green spoke with Munyaradzi “Munya” Dodo, a Zimbabwean journalist who is keeping citizens informed on the pandemic’s developments and holding the government accountable.
