Sipho Kings - The Continent

The Continent is an award-winning pan-African weekly newspaper noted for disrupting how mainstream African media tells African news and reaches audiences, including being available on WhatsApp. Their grant was used to hire a news editor. Lydia Namubiru is a highly-regarded investigative journalist and “Precious few people are reporting on Africa from a continental perspective. Where there are resources to do this, they tend to be coming from international news organisations,” said Sipho Kings, Editorial Director at The Continent.
