Zuma Tops As Election Loudmouth

President Jacob Zuma tops a list of the top 20 ‘loudmouths’ in the run-up to the elections, with Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) leader, Julius Malema, coming in a close second.

According to an interim report released by the Media Monitoring Africa (MMA), Zuma received the most media coverage in the months leading up to the elections.

EFF leader Julius Malema is in second place, followed by the Democratic Alliance (DA) leader, Helen Zille, DA Gauteng premier candidate, Mmusi Maimane, and Public Protector, Thuli Madonsela.

Citizens Forgotten in Election Coverage: MMA

The Media Monitoring Africa (MMA) says the media has allowed political parties to set the agenda for coverage of the election campaign and neglected issues affecting ordinary citizens.

In an interim report on the media's handling of the elections, the watchdog says 52 percent of all stories 7 May 2014 polls concern ‘party campaigning’ and ‘party politics’.

Young Voices Absent in Swazi Media

According to new research by Swaziland's Media Institute of Southern Africa (MISA) in partnership with child rights NGO Save the Children, children and young people's voices in Swaziland's media are heard in only eight percent of the stories that are about them.

The two organisations monitored the country’s two daily newspapers - Times of Swaziland and Swazi Observer - from 22 May to 2 June 2013 and during this period, the Times of Swaziland published 42 stories about (or involving) children or young people.
