Reporting on Africa is a complex, as Africa is a continent with about 800 million people, with 54 countries of which South Africa is the southern tip.

However, from this brief monitoring exercise, it seems that many of Gauteng-based media have not had the editorial commitment to cover Africa often and have ignored the complexities of various situations.
