People's opinions are strongly influenced by traditional and social media. However, these often present a biased view designed to skew people's perceptions.

We ask user questions on hot, controversial or fun topics, and then show them the real data curated from multiple Government data sources (both national and SA). We present the data in a fun and yet informative and educational quiz to challenge people's beliefs and pre-conceptions.
