JOHANNESBURG – THE Centre for African Journalists (CAJ News), the Pan African premier news service provider, announced plans to expand to Arab Africa after recording growth in the West and East African regions.
CEO and Editor – in – Chief, Savious -Parker Kwinika announced on Wednesday the agency had successfully set a footprint in the key markets in the continent.
“I can safely confirm that CAJ News has recently set footprint in the Francophone West African world where we will soon announce local news service editorial bureau.
“We have started with five countries comprising Cameroon, Ivory Coast, Burkina Faso, Senegal and Mali, but there is always room to expand before end of September.
“Apart from the presence in the Francophone nations, we have increased our presence in East Africa where we now cover Somalia, Burundi and Ethiopia,” Kwinika said.
He disclosed the company had set its sights on opening bureaus in the northern Africa in the Arab Africa states comprising Algeria, Egypt, Libya, Morocco and Tunisia.
Kwinika said the firm was hopeful of expanding to North African before end of October.
“It’s not by our mighty power, wisdom or strength, but the Almighty Jehovah God is directing all operations for us.
“We are determined to install the voice of Africa for Africa by Africa’s own news agency. The sooner African newspapers, radio stations, televisions and websites understand that the better for their uncontaminated news content about the continent,” he said.
From humble beginnings in Johannesburg, South Africa, CAJ News is now competing at par with leading international news agencies.
