Findings from Afrobarometer Round 9 survey in South Africa.

At a glance:

Electricity: Most South Africans say other actors besides Eskom should be allowed to generate and distribute electricity.

Climate change: Half of the population say they have never heard of climate change.

Elections: A growing majority of South Africans would be willing to forgo elections if a non-elected government could provide security, jobs, and housing.
