Nkandla gets most coverage - survey

Johannesburg - President Jacob Zuma's private Nkandla homestead in KwaZulu-Natal received the most media coverage by political parties in the lead up to the general elections, media survey group DDI said on Tuesday.

In the past 24 hours, the African National Congress's coverage of Nkandla in the local media amounted to 24.4%, while the Economic Freedom Fighters' focus on the homestead amounted to 22%.

The Democratic Alliance focused more on job creation (20.91%), but the party's stance on Nkandla still received 20.6% of its focus.

"It is the first time since we have started monitoring the elections that the major political parties' focus areas have passed that of Nkandla," DDI said referring to the statistic on the DA.

According to the survey, job creation, education, and service delivery were some of the secondary issues the three parties focused on in media coverage.

The data was compiled from social media platforms, which included blogs, forums, social networks, and commentary.

It also included data from global online newspapers, South African print publications, and radio and television stations.
