Hi Phil, There was a discussion about this in December on the PanAfrican Localisation lists - 
- though localization of the interface was the main topic. 

I've heard favorable things about Drupal, and that some who have used Joomla have since turned away from it. 

There are some links to comparisons and other info at 
Although a wiki software it can also be configured as a CMS - I'm currently experimenting with it for revamping the site to have some sections function as a wiki and others more like CMS. (See )

Hope this helps.
