About Us

East African Monitor is the home of English language news for the wider East African region. Here you’ll find no political agenda, no bias and absolutely no sensationalist reporting. What you will find is no-nonsense, impartial reporting on all the latest events to come out of the region – making us the ultimate source of reliable insights into East Africa for English speakers. The site is ran by a team of young journalists, freelance writers and former NGO workers who have all lived in the region.
