Edits made by the organization after this assessment

We have ve added the reference that Code for Africa is registered as Civic Media Initiative in Kenya. The Data Zetu website is offline as their programme funding ran out, so we're adding an archive link to the website as it was, and the text on the About page states that the organization is defunct, meaning that it is no longer active.
We've updated the 'Our Principles' section of our site as advised, and the writers have also been included on the About Us page.
I hope this is sufficient. Let me know if there is anything else that we need to add/change.
Thanks again for the heads up on this.
Conclusion and recommendations

There is no mention on the website pesacheck.org codeforafrica.org or codeforkenya.org of Civic Media Initiative (Kenya) - the mother organisation applicant mentioned in application. This means applicant organisation does not offer evidence of its ties to a parent or umbrella organisation.
According to http://www.npo.gov.za/PublicNpo/Npo/DetailsPublicDocs/33619918 the applicant is filed away under the following category:
Law, Advocacy, and Politics > Civic and Advocacy Organizations > Civil rights associations Voluntary Association. We suggest to show that information on About page or ask gov.za to change the category.
We don't find always a source or a link to the information published.
The applicant says in https://pesacheck.org/our-principles-2e9c5a00ecb1 that one of the financial supporters is https://datazetu.or.tz (they provided this link). However, this site doesn't exist anymore.
