Public health emergencies place immense power in the hands of executive leadership. This can pose a risk of creeping authoritarianism. Professor Narnia Bohler-Muller and Dr Benjamin Roberts explore the lessons that can be drawn from the findings of the University of Johannesburg and the Human Sciences Research Council’s online survey on the public’s views on lockdown regulations. 


In March 2020, the Covid-19 pandemic led President Cyril Ramaphosa to announce a state of national disaster in terms of the Disaster Management Act. Strict lockdown regulations instituted under this legislation had a clear bearing on human rights.

While the High Court declared some of the Level 4 and 3 regulations irrational and thus unconstitutional in mid-2020, our survey research demonstrates that ordinary people in South Africa voice unwavering support for the select limitation of their rights as a means of preventing the spread of the virus.

We believe that this partly reflects

The antidote to vanity metrics when you have less than 1 hour/week for marketing analytics

Patrick Han
The Class of 2017 is an example of a cohort. All these students share the same date of graduation.

Earlier this year, we at Humanlytics interviewed more than 100 small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs) to learn about their biggest digital marketing pain points. What we found was that two recurring themes kept coming up over and over again:

  1. Scarce Time/Bandwidth for Analytics: Most small business owners and marketers have very limited time and bandwidth to analyze their data. They’re too busy running their businesses. As one business owner put it, “using data is like trying to rescue a piano from a burning room — it’s nice to have but I have higher priorities.” This is because it takes a lot of time and training to turn data into actionable business insights, i.e. to answer
