Jesuit Communications (JESCOM)
–the Communications Arm of the Zimbabwe Jesuit Province
MUKAI - VUKANI
JESCOM publishes Mukai – Vukani (meaning Wake Up!), the Jesuit Journal for Zimbabwe.
This is an in-house magazine distributed freely to Jesuits and friends five times a year, with a circulation of 2000 copies.
This journal is a continuation of the 21 editions of Mukai published by Jesuits just for themselves in the 1990s. The “new” Mukai has now reached No 59.
About the JESCOM and its Journal
- Mukai-Vukani Jesuit Journal for Zimbabwe serves as a Bulletin for Theological Reflection among Jesuits in Zimbabwe and their friends.
- It tries to help us answer the question, "What direction do we have to follow in the light of the Word of God at this moment in time?"
- It facilitates dialogue among Jesuits and their friends based on study, prayer and discernment.
- Mukai-Vukani welcomes letters to the editor and articles of not more than 1200 words from among its readers.
- It is keen to provide a platform to discuss the present situation in Zimbabwe – where media are shackled, people are without access to information and unable to express alternative views.
- JESCOM also provides other interested media organisatios with information on Jesuits and their work in Zimbabwe.
- The Jesuit Communications office is supported by a supervisory board which also acts as editorial board for Mukai-Vukani.
- JESCOM always welcomes young Jesuits interested in media work. It hopes to be able to network with other Jesuit media workers and communicators on the continent.
- Gift Mambipiri is editorial assistant, Frashishiko Chikosi administrator and Priscilla Mapfuwa secretary.
- JESCOM cooperates with the Dominican Life-Lines project, which produces videos, CDs, DVDs under its director, Sister Tendai Makonese OP.
IN TOUCH with Church and Faith
From its Harare office, Jesuit Communications sends out a twice monthly electronic newsletter, IN TOUCH with Church and Faith.
The newsletter gives information on the Jesuits and the Church in Zimbabwe.
A special feature is the series ‘Mbare Report’, in which the editor writes on life in this socially depressed working-class district. IN TOUCH goes out to different parts of Zimbabwe, as well as Zimbabweans in the diaspora. Some publications outside the country take up its material bringing it to a wider audience.
