Thank you for visiting Msimulizi 0nline, an East African-Canadian Media Project (EACMP). Our ultimate goal is to promote the social, economic and political interests of the East African community living and working in Canada.
Msimulizi, is a Swahili word which means ‘Storyteller.’
As you can see Msimulizi 0nline is a work in progress, so please be patient with us as we embark on this journey of ‘TELLING OUR OWN STORIES‘ For now, we’ll try to deliver one or two stories a month involving East African newsmakers and rewrite also syndicate news & events that are of interest to our community.
We are the only community news portal in Canada delivering news and information in English and Swahili languages fusion. We are also working on bringing you news and information in other languages that are spoken by East African-Canadians: such as Gujarati, Kutchi, and Swenglish!. We also encourage community members to participate by contributing news, information, blogging. If you see something of interest to the East African-Canadian community, please Capture & Share here.
Our primary mission is to cover the important issues such as local politics, public health, business, education, gender equality, civil rights and responsibilities. Our mission also includes introducing newcomers to the democratic institutions, the new way of living and information on health, education, taxes, just to name a few.
East African-Canadians have many stories to tell. It also happens that we buy ink by the ‘barrel’, in other words, we love to tell stories and have a platform for telling our community’s stories.
As community journalists, we have the experience, insights, and knowledge of where our community lives, shop, dine out, spend their leisure time and all the recent trends on their block, street, and local communities.
We also invite the community stakeholders and media personalities with East African background to join us in this exciting media project. If you would like more info, please email us @ email@example.com
We are also looking for funding and investors who are interested in supporting us with our project, as we are also planning to create a business directory, organize community events and publish the first East African Community newspaper in Greater Toronto Area in Swahili & English.
