Twitter list: South African media sources

My Twitter list of media sources that I track for news about South Africa.

The direct link to this on the web is https://twitter.com/rickeyre/media-southafrica although I understand this is hard to pick up on some Twitter apps.

Note that I have included the official Twitter feed of President Jacob Zuma's office in this list.

(This was originally posted in June 2013 when Nelson Mandela was gravely ill in hospital. I have updated in on 6 December 2013 following news of his passing.)
