More on context

"Although the Zimbabwe Education 1987 Act (as amended in 199) in Section 55 of X1 has provisions for the teaching of minority languages in areas where they exist, very little is actually being done. Furthermore, in Zimbabwe, there is very limited electronic broadcasting and print media which is being done in Nambya."

More on context

"Although it was decreed that Nambya should be the language to be used as the medium of instruction in Hwange district, this decree met with immense difficulties regarding its implementation." "...[T]he language has very few published materials in it, whether it be literature- or language-related." "Although provision was made [in Zimbabwe] to broadcast Nambya on radio alongside the other official minority languages, this provision has not been utilised yet." "...Nambya is supposed to be an official minority language [in Zimbabwe]."
