Digital Narrative Manipulation Overview

The Digital Narrative Manipulation (DNM) project aims to undermine and render ineffective these ‘fake news’ manipulated narratives and misinformation/disinformation campaigns deployed in South Africa through a unique three phase approach.


CareZA was created by the CABC to provide South Africans, and all who live in South Africa, with a non-partisan platform where they can access all the latest, fact checked news and information on all topical issues affecting our society, from Covid-19 to xenophobia, gender-based violence, corruption, environment and more.
