Media Monitoring Africa, one of the leading human rights media research organisations, has been monitoring the coverage of every election period in South Africa since the country’s first democratic elections in 1994.
Some of this earlier work can be viewed below:
- National and Provincial Elections 2009: “A win or a place, citizens come last.”
- Citizens’ Agenda Flushed Away: Uncovering Media on Municipal Elections
Over the years, our monitoring and analysis has extended to other countries, including Zambia and Lesotho.
In addition to moving from a traditional monitoring methodology to an online one, we have also changed the way in which we present our results. Here, find our first series of interactive presentations, showcasing our monitoring results of Zambian elections (2015), Lesotho elections (2015) and South African local government elections (2016).
