Waking up early in the morning just to go get the daily newspaper is common practice among Kenyans and for most people buying and/or subscribing to several different papers is not an option. This is because various sources of news report on different issues affecting society but ultimately daily subscriptions and purchase of the various news sources out there becomes quite expensive.
Luckily, there is a solution for that, thanks to Nation Media Group’s EastAfrican paper. The EastAfrican is a weekly paper which covers pressing issues in East Africa. The best part is that it comes with The EastAfrican E Paper app and at a pocket-friendly subscription cost.
The EastAfrican has various segments that keep everyone updated on their issues of interest. Apart from local news and general advertisements, the paper also contains:
Opinion articles: These involve personal views from editors, bankers, writers, researchers, politicians and other professionals who voice their opinions on trending issues around the region.
Outlook: This is a pullout on African affairs, economics, trade, security and the environment. On this week’s issue there is an interesting discussion on why there are fewer women making it to the top. Women only make up for 14% of directors on the boards of Africa’s top 307 listed companies. Get yourself a copy to follow up on the discussion.
The East African magazine: This is another pullout that focuses on book reviews and recommendations, lifestyle, travel, art, health science and sports.
Business: This segment is all about business stories with articles from various sectors like the banking sectors, mining, fisheries and agriculture.
Markets: The last section on the paper covers the stock market and financial analysis.
If you are a current affairs lover and passionate about what happens across the East African regional borders, The EastAfrican is the paper to go for.
