Media Monitoring Africa Communications Manager, Nomshado Lubisi, has emphasised the importance of combating disinformation and misinformation as it poses a threat to democratic processes.
“It’s important to not accept and share information at face value. How we interact with information online needs to echo credibility because when you share information you are influencing the next person,” Lubisi said.
“With disinformation … they are creating deliberate information to cause public harm and this can come in various forms, whether its impacting ones decision to make an informed decision of who to vote for or whether you should take a vaccine or not,” Lubisi said
