The African News Agency (ANA) is Africa’s first syndicated, multimedia news and content distribution service. We strive to provide information that is helpful and relevant to decision-makers, investors and ordinary people.
Our ANA News Wire is the single, most comprehensive source of African news:
we inform, enlighten and connect you to Africa and the World. ANA News Wire is committed to telling our continent’s story with accuracy and balance, while providing the African perspective. We strive 24/7 to be your reliable and credible African news source.
Our continent has so many untold stories that should be heard and so many investment opportunities that should be shared. We structure our content across six key pillars: conflict and crisis; economics and governance; business and entrepreneurship; sustainable development; marginalised communities (women and youth); and lifestyle and sport.
Descended from the South African Press Association (SAPA), the ANA News Wire established itself as Africa's leading news platform and has forged alliances with trusted news partners across the continent and the world. Together we cover the globe and our own ANA Correspondents provide first-hand accounts of breaking news.
When news breaks, we will know and we will tell you immediately, helping you to make better decisions faster. We aim to provide news you can use: information that is helpful and relevant to decision-makers, investors and ordinary people.
We provide comprehensive news diaries, text reports, pictures and videos on our state-of-the-art digital platforms, designed specifically to speedily share large quantities of content. We produce our own unique copy, according to international best practice reporting standards, and we also offer you syndicated news from a range of government and independent sources.
