WHO WE ARE
The idea to create a Portal which follows African news and affairs in real time was born from the collaboration between Riccardo Barlaam, an italian reporter who works for the daily financial journal Il Sole 24 Ore, and a group of young african journalists. The idea to create AfricaTimesNews rises from the foregone conclusion that Africa is one of the most under reported regions in the World. News stories from Africa come to us only to report tragedy; different types of news from Africa remain invisible to the outside world. AfricaTimesNews humbly proposes to contribute and to help fill this information void.
