Initiative Description

Open Parly ZW is Zimbabwe’s trailblazing media platform creating engagement between young people and decision-makers and providing real-time access into the corridors of parliament through live tweeting and coverage. Open Parly has seen over 10 million impressions per month on Twitter and the handle has been named as “the 2nd most important Twitter handle to follow in Zimbabwe”.

In 2019 the project established 3 hyper-local news platforms with a focus on council related business under the banner of Open Council – Harare, Masvingo & Marondera. The platforms are bringing about radical transparency and accountability to local government and rural district council activities.

Open Parly’s trailblazing initiatives have seen it spreading across Africa, with the launch of Open Parly in Somalia – known as – and with the launch of Open Parly ZED in Zambia.
