Getting it right on Biti

HARARE – On 7 April 2014, we published an article headed: Tsvangirai Plot; Dossier claims Biti working with Zanu PF, Western donors fingered in conspiracy.

The story in question made certain allegations against Honourable Tendai Biti relating to his alleged links with Zanu PF and alleged misappropriation of funds within the context of the ongoing MDC squabbles.

Honourable Biti has pointed out that this is false and we accept his argument.

After a careful consideration of the facts and a mediation process led by the Voluntary Media Council of Zimbabwe (VMCZ), the Daily News would like to retract and apologise to Hon Biti over various allegations that were made in our April 7 story.

We place it on record that our duty is to report without fear and favour and we would like to state that we harbour no ill-feeling towards Hon Biti. 

We abide by the media watchdog’s finding that the allegations made against him were false and prejudicial to him.

As Daily News, we abide by ethical standards of journalism, including the media code of conduct. — Editor
