This platform also includes a deployment of an interactive Social Accountability Crowd Map: crowd.newzambian.com
The cartoon magazine ‘Flip’, was the first of its kind for Zambia with cartoons as primary content and focussing on social, economic and political issues with a satirical slant. The Kavundula Weekly Newspaper also presents a first in Newspaper design, content and innovation. The newspaper is built on a foundation of people’s diverse voices sourced from various social media. It acts as a bridge between digital and print media, ushering in a new age of citizen journalism. The backbone of the publication is not trained journalists but a collation of social media tweets of news and commentary on issues at the core of Zambian society.
