We need your help. 

We at African Arguments strive to provide you with timely analysis you can trust. We empower African journalists and commentators to tell the stories that need telling. We support investigations into issues that some would rather were kept in the dark.

All of this is more important than ever as civic space shrinks, governments tighten their grip on the free media, and fake news spreads across social media channels. 

But what we do costs money. 

That's why we need your support. It only takes a few moments to donate, but every contribution is crucial in helping us remain independent, critical and sustainable. 

We are currently working on a quick and easy system to set up regular and one-off donations, but for now please donate through the RAS portal here or get in touch at
