We definitely need a wiki, but do agree that a wiki is not (and should not
be used as) a CMS.

If we want to go local we might want to consider
is an open source CMS developed as a collaboration by 12 African
universities. One of them is UWC and they might also be able help us out
with shared hosting. Apparently it can do blogs, wikis and has got a pretty
cool photo gallery module. However, I don't have any experience with this
CMS. If anybody do, please share your insights.
