Great African News


We’ve known for many years, if not decades, that African nations were the recipients of a bad rap of misrepresentation, stereotyping, and negative media of all sorts. Which is why many books have been written, and organizations and movements formed, to tackle this very issue.

With each passing day the real news about our beloved continent continues to emerge. What’s the real news you might ask? Don’t look too far! Read between the lines of the news.

As I’ve been looking at where the continent is headed in 2019 I found great news, some of which I like to share with you. The first is the November, 2018 McKinsey & Company report on Business in Africa: Africa’s overlooked business revolution.


Africa Agenda is driven by the need to change the one-sided narrative of African News. We use this website, journalistic tools, and events, including the Africa News Matters website, as platforms for critical engagement and news analysis about the African continent.Founded on December 11, 2004 by George Bamu and formed as a 501C(3) non-profit organization, governed under Colorado State and the Internal Revenue Service(IRS) laws, Africa Agenda’s mission is to promote positive African News through engagement with the community, mass media outlets, leaders and lay people.

More than an information portal, Africa Agenda is a news media and education organization and a work in progress.


Africa Agenda strives to highlight positive, unbiased news about Africa.
