Media Policy

Abahlali baseMjondolo has always been ready to discuss its goals with the media. Its representatives are, unlike the government, keen to offer honest and straightforward answers to questions from the media, and to offer resources to help print, radio and TV sources get the best and most accurate story to their constituents. All Abahlali meetings and events are open to all media at all times without exception. If journalists visiting us do not speak isiZulu and isiXhosa we will always be happy to arrange translation into English.

Media Coverage

Abahlali have appeared in all major South African newspapers, radio and television stations and many popular magazines (in isiZulu, isiXhosa and English), and in international media such as the New York Times, The Times (London), The Economist, Al Jazeera, Agence France-Presse, Le Monde diplomatique, CNN etc, etc. Quite a bit, although certainly not all, of the print media coverage over the last three years is archived on this website. The biggest gaps are in the coverage in the various local newspapers which are not online and some of the foreign newspapers which require subscriptions for online access.
