Wazimap, from the Xhosa word ulwazi for knowledge, provides easy access to South African census and elenctions data.
In 2016, 29 municipalities in South Africa were created and 40 were disestablished. At OpenUp, we handle these changes by following the principle of “making the common easy, and making the not-so-common possible”.
Wazimap now has 2016 Municipal Election results and uses the municipalities and ward boundaries used for the elections.
It's now much easier to build your own Wazimap and help more people find the story behind the data.
