MADHOROFIYA REPUBLIC

PaJecha is an animated humorous web series that seeks to create a new narrative about the lives of young Zimbabweans in townships, engaging with themes such as unemployment, drug abuse and crime by creating open and positive conversations about what can be done to tackle these challenges. The series will be created by Madhorofiya Republik who will be producing the online content alongside a pre-existing satirical podcast ‘Sadza in the Morning’ that summarises the week’s more pertinent political, social and financial issues. The podcast encourages listeners to participate in activities that contribute to social good and government accountability such as participation in civic demonstrations and in civic processes such a voter registration and public consultations.

Madhorofiya Republik is an online satirical podcast and animated web series with the aim of mobilising young people to make their voices heard and to demand an accountable government.
