About the product

This book is a milestone in the development of Africa’s information society. It measures the long distance between performance and potential of the continent’s media in regard to bridging the digital divide. The study shows how Africa’s information elite is afflicted by information-poverty when it comes to understanding and executing their role in communicating about Information Communication Technologies (ICTs). The striking findings and the cogent recommendations will be of value to Governments, media practitioners and institutions.
