Founded in 2015, and launched in 2016, Khuluma Afrika is one of the most trusted reservoirs of digital news in Zimbabwe, South Africa, and Malawi. Initially founded as centre for original and untainted user generated political opinions and analysis, the platform morphed into an investigative unit meant to quench the thirst for deep investigative journalism.
In the 2 years it has operated Khuluma Afrika has become a primary informer for several news outlets, and a content partner for some of the regions leading digital and print news agencies
The list of news agencies who re-publish, utilise, or partner with Khuluma Afrika’s content includes Power 98.7fm South Africa, Newsday Zimbabwe, The Standard Newspaper, Nehanda Radio, Bulawayo 24, News 24, and Daily Maverick.
Why the name?
The name Khuluma means speak in Zulu, Ndebele, ChiChewa, and Xhosa. These are among the dominant languages in Southern Africa. In traditional African languages, the word Africa is spelt with a ‘K’. The decision to use an African name, and an African spelling was born out of the need to create an original platform, rooted in Africa, which provides cutting edge digital news in an African theme.
Khuluma Afrika is a centre for investigative journalism, political analysis, and social commentary. The platform reports largely and primarily on Zimbabwean matters in the realms of politics, governance, economics, policy, and current affairs.
Khuluma Afrika also provides cutting edge analysis, commentary, and editorial perspectives on socio-economic matters.
Our aim is to maintain a flow of accurate, unconventional, truthful and incisive information in Southern Africa. To break the barriers that conventional news outlets face with regards to dissemination of accurate information.
At Khuluma Afrika we promote constructive and sober journalism. The editorial does not hold any particular inclination towards any political parties, ideology, or movements. Our individual writers and contributors may have their own preferences, but they do not inspire the collective direction of the publication or its editorial policy.
