What does Mizozo stand for?Mizozo is Swahili for "Difference of Opinion" or "Argument", at least in the context of this site. Other possible translations of the word include: Dispute, Fault-Finding, Quarrel and Nagging. top
What is a Mizozo?All news stories have different perspectives, so to get the whole picture of a particular event different perspectives need to be presented. A Mizozo is a news story that has already been presented from numerous sides. This way the readers get all the information they need to form an opinion of the events in question. In short, a Mizozo is a news story that has both sides of the story laid out.

How do I signup to write for Mizozo?For more information on how to signup you should visit our Registration Page. Due to the fact that we have been flooded with spammers registering on Mizozo non-stop, then posting countless spam articles, we have removed the registration widget instead opting for a more manual process. Just follow the instruction on the Registration Page and a user account will be created for you reasonably quickly. top
Why can't I submit an Article?Only people logged into the system can add content to Mizozo, outside of comments. If you are not logged in, when clicking on "Contribute" you will be redirected to the Registration Page. After registering, you will be able to submit whatever you like, so long as it isn't SPAM.
Can I submit a Guest Post?While we don't have a mechanism in place where people can just submit a guest post, by registering on the site you can achieve the same goal. Simply visit our Registration Page, follow the instructions to acquire a user, then login and submit as many articles as you like. top
Are the prizes you offer real, or do you just keep them for yourself?The prizes are very real and every month we try to make things as transparent as possible regarding who won and why. Mizozo does not employ writers, so all winners are simply people who wrote articles for Mizozo for that given month. top
Why do you consider yourself a Socialist site?The term "Socialist" is very broad, and can be attributed to much. We aren't trying to start a political organization, we are simply embracing many of the facets that Socialism happens to teach. Since there is no better way to describe what it is we are trying to accomplish, we chose the term Socialist.
However, this is a very loose term that isn't meant to imply anything. We are simply trying to achieve a transparent business model where all those who participate in the company share in its wealth. We plan to eliminate all ownership and give the site to the people once it has achieved a decent user base. top
