About Us

GovChat is South Africa’s largest civic engagement platform accessible online, on any mobile handset and feature phones. We’ve enabled Government to speak to citizens directly at no cost, while receiving service delivery related messaging in return. GovChat exists through partnerships with the South African Local Government Association (SALGA), Department of Cooperative Governance and Traditional Affairs (COGTA) and Government Communication and Information System (GCIS).

GovChat evolved from research objectives to become the home of the collective narratives and experiences of our entire community through the messages and stories that are shared on the platform.

GovChat (PTY) LTD, an Open Government Partnership with the Department of Government Communication and Information System South Africa.
