Media Monitoring Africa (“MMA”) was admitted as an amicus curiae by order of this Court on 17 July 2020, and raises three main issues of relevance to this matter: First, the need to bear in mind the threat of disinformation in striking the appropriate balance between the right to freedom of expression and the rights to dignity and reputation. Second, the proper approach to be taken towards the notion of the “reasonable reader” in the context of social media. Third, the importance of effective and expeditious procedures and remedies in defamation proceedings relating to online publications.
