Who is Nehanda Radio?

Nehanda Radio is a Zimbabwean radio station that provides 24 hour running news on the website and during broadcasts. We also aim to provide breaking news as it happens via our popular e-mail alert system which listeners and readers can subscribe to. Zimbabwe is in the midst of a great tragedy and we believe we have a role to play in informing everyone involved in trying to change things.

Why the name

We draw our inspiration from Mbuya Nehanda, the mother of our nation. She was the spirit medium that was the inspiration behind the 1896-97 first chimurenga. When the Europeans arrived in Zimbabwe, Nehanda’s spirit medium was a woman by the name of Nyakasikana.

She lived in the northern part of Zimbabwe and used her leadership to spearhead the first war of resistance (Chimurenga CheKutanga) against European domination of the region.
