About The Messenger

The Messenger is different because we don't play by the same rules as many other media – no nasty clickbait, no inane commentary, no irrelevant gossip passed off as news.

We're producing original, high-quality, reported news from East Africa. This process costs money. But as a startup, we believe we can make a big impact from just a modest beginning. If you're a fan of our journalism, please donate a small amount to help us get The Messenger up and running, make it grow and keep it thriving!

The Messenger – Reliable. Clean. Intelligent. News the way it should be.
