Nieman Reports;Fall2010, Vol. 64 Issue 3, p88
The author discusses the positive developments in media and journalism in South Africa, a former land of apartheid. She cites the visit she made in the country in early 2010. She names the two South Africans who are her fellow Niemans of 1979, namely, John Mojapelo and Donald Woods. She examines the important role played by newspapers in uncovering irregularities in the government like the case of Julius Malema of the African National Congress (ANC) Youth League, who is being subjected to an investigation due to contract irregularities.
