This is a critical time in Zimbabwe, as the country prepares for upcoming elections in July 2018. These are the first elections since Robert Mugabe’s resignation last November, and so mark a fundamental change in the country’s political landscape. Civil society organizations working on issues related to governance and human rights must navigate a rapidly evolving environment. In order to do so, it is necessary to understand how these political developments shape public opinion – especially as regards citizen engagement in the democratic process.
The Magamba Network launched a pilot project with Orange Door Research, to create a Citizens’ Voice Index. The Citizens’ Voice Index tracks changing public opinion in real-time, using daily mobile phone surveys. The results are then shared with key civil society partners – led by the Magamba Network – via a secure online Dashboard.
