A chart listing theĀ  most frequently mentioned nations on this site shows:

  • South Africa, Nigeria, and Kenya have many newsworthy stories
  • Regionally, East Africa produces the most news articles and ICT updates/opinions

The larger question remains: do underrepresented nations on oAfrica.com lack ICT developments or do they lack online news exposure? Stay tuned…
