Media Monitoring Africa (MMA) has been monitoring elections media coverage for all elections since we transitioned to democracy.  Each time we monitor we seek to find answers to questions like: Which parties were covered, was the coverage fair and equitable? Whose voices did we hear and what did they say? What was the coverage about and who set the agenda?

Join us as we unpack some of these questions and help shine a spotlight on the successes thus far as well as the missed opportunities of newsrooms as they are currently covering the 2021 Local Government elections.

Date: 19 October 2021

We will also be joined by experts as they reflect on some of the key opportunities, trends, stories and a historical perspective of South African media coverage.
