Yebo will offer stories from more than 30 African countries for free, including documentaries, shorts and features curated over the past 12 years by Africa 24 Media’s journalists.

Asif Sheikh, the Kenyan company’s founder and CEO, said: “For two decades I was away from home, studying and working in North America. While there, I constantly craved news from back home. Sadly, all we got at the time were stories of a continent ravaged by war, corruption and disease. Most of these stories were told by foreign journalists.

“When I came back, I found amazing stories that were not covered by the international press, and that gave me the inspiration to allow more of our people to tell these stories.”

Yebo is available as an Android app via the Google Play store. Any content downloaded on the app can be watched offline within 30 days.
