A feature article called ‘Swazi Media Commentary: Telling the truth about Swaziland’ is published today (4 February 2011) online at Pambazuka News.
‘To read accurate daily analyses of the situation in Swaziland, you must turn not to its self-censored official newspapers or a foreign media that has no daily presence in Swaziland, but to a blog .....’ it reads.
It describes Swazi Media Commentary as ‘a rare example of objective, progressive news and journalism in a country burdened with biased reporting and censorship.’
(That’s enough trumpet-blowing – ed).
It is written by Peter Kenworthy, of Africa Contact, who also writes the stiffkitten blog.
