THE dream of many Africans has always been to have their own stories told by themselves to themselves and the world. That is the strong foundation on which The African Mirror has been built. From today, Africans will make a contribution to the achievement of a decades-long dream by Africans to reclaim their narrative.
As Africans continue to build the continent, one country at a time, we make bold that never again shall our stories be told by someone else.
Despite its setbacks over the years – marked by, among others, under-development, diseases and wars – Africa has been slowly rebuilding herself and ready to take her rightful place among the leading nations in the world.
Our mission is as clear as the diamonds found in the Kgalagadi desert: we are proudly African, fiercely opposed to corruption, and will present to you an Africa that you have not seen before. This is an Africa seen through the eyes of Africans themselves.
Our pages are home for African thought leaders across the spectrum. Our African Lifestyle pages introduce Africans to fellow Africans through the arts, cuisine, beauty, fashion, and travel. We cater to the needs of Africans and know that we are big on, among others, education, health, religion, and sports. Content on these topics – from news, features, profiles to thought-provoking debates – is found on our pages.
In business, the world is looking for new markets for growth, and Africa, which has one of the youngest and fastest growing populations in the world, in addition to the amazing natural resources, which has attracted attention.
Read inspirational stories on how African economies represent the biggest potential for global economic growth and why some of the fastest-growing economies are African.
