South Africa-based media giant Mail &Guardian Media Ltd has launched Mail and Guardian Africa, a digital news platform it said will tell the African story for Africans.
News analysis, insight, commentary and investigative journalism will be the hallmark of this Pan African platform, the company, owned by Zimbabwe-born Trevor Ncube, said.
Mail and Guardian Africa said it was aiming to be the leading and most important commercially successful contemporary voice on African issues.
While the print section of the company is based in Johannesburg, South Africa, the head office of the digital news platform will be based in Nairobi, Kenya.
From this location, M&G Africa editor Charles Onyango-Obbo will lead a carefully selected contingent of creative and African journalists and editors operating across the continent.
