The Konrad Adenauer Foundation (KAS) believes that political bloggers in Sub-Saharan Africa have created new platforms for good journalism. Their blogs add to the diversity of opinion and information supporting democratic culture and debate on the continent. In November 2015, a hand-picked group of these bloggers from nine Sub-Saharan African countries gathered in Johannesburg, South Africa for a conference to prepare for the launch of the #AfricaBlogging http://www.africablogging.org/ platform in December 2015. With the support of KAS Media Africa, the website aims to bring together critical voices from Sub Saharan Africa and make them accessible to a wider audience.

The platform promotes reporting about social and political topics not adequately covered in the mainstream media’s selection of news and aims to make the bloggers’ views and opinions accessible to a wider audience.
