About Us

At Hivisasa, we believe that societies function best when information flows freely among people. This is why we've created Africa’s first crowdsourced news site. Our innovative platform allows you not just to discover untold stories but also to write your own.

Born five years ago, Hivisasa now reaches over two million Kenyan readers a month, whose engagement helps support 1,500+ pioneering local writers. And we are just getting started.

As a Kenyan company, community is at the heart of everything we do. All Hivisasa editors are local and proud to collaborate with writers from all walks of life to bring you the news you need to stay ahead.

As our mission, we are committed to fostering understanding, championing accountability and supporting collective action through local news.


Hivisasa.com was piloted in 2012 by the seed fund 88mph and officially launched in January 2014. In June 2015, Luminate and Novastar Ventures invested in Hivisasa.com.
