This document provides a sobering view of media and participation and promotion of information society issues. Many of the African countries surveyed have formulated or are implementing national Information and Communication Infrastructure Plans(NICIS)/e-strategies, yet the stark reality is that not many journalists are engaged in the issues; and if they are, it is from a limited perspective. It is hoped that this publication will provide all those with an interest in ICT4D issues in Africa (including the media) with food for thought and will open a window of opportunity for greater intervention and further research with respect to media and ICTS in Africa.
