The National Arts Council of Zimbabwe (NACZ) wishes to express its most sincere condolences to the Dongozi family, stakeholders and practitioners in media industry following the passing on of Foster Dongozi the Secretary-General of the Zimbabwe Union of Journalists (ZUJ).

Dongozi served diligently as an adjudicator for the National Arts Merit Awards (NAMA) and in the past 4-years he was the chairperson of the Journalism sub-committee.

He was part of the team that the NACZ consulted in the introduction of the Journalism category at the National Arts Merit Awards (NAMA).

The passing of Dongozi has left a huge void in the journalism sector as he was always at the forefront of the fight to improve the conditions of service for media practitioners in Zimbabwe.

As NACZ we will surely miss his direction and insight in the NAMA adjudication process to which he dedicated his time and passion to make sure that only the best proponents of the arts in the media were rewarded.

May his soul Rest in Eternal Peace
