Who We Are
The Sunatimes.com is a privately held news media company. The center is in Mogadishu, but our network of local reporters throughout the country uncovers stories that are authentically local, yet also globally relevant. Our independence enables us to report widely and present a diversity of opinions.
During a time when the world is changing ever more quickly, people need reliable information to understand events and trends. We strive to make a positive impact on people's lives by helping all people understand the world and themselves, and to respect and appreciate each other. We report stories and air opinions unavailable elsewhere.
A special strength of the Sunatimes.com is our coverage of Somalia. Today the world is increasingly looking to Somalia, as the world want to understand better what is happening there.
A human being's fundamental right is the right to be heard. We upholdand defend freedom of the press, freedom of speech, and freedom of assembly. We are also strong advocates for all human rights, for all people.
We seek to speak out for those who are oppressed, and cannot speak for themselves. We speak to those in conflict, trying to show the common humanity they share, and the compassion that will help them truly respect the rights of others.
We work to tell the stories of daily life in our age, not on the basis of what is sensational at the moment, but instead in terms of what will be of lasting significance. We take the long view of humanity's history and future.
The English edition of Sunatimes.com launched in 2010 on the web, and we hope a newspaper soon. It meets a growing need for news
reported and published independently, uncovering stories that have depth and meaning to people. In English, it serves a broad, international readership.
The English website of www.sunatimes.com started publishing in response to the growing need for uncensored coverage of events in Somalia..

The www.Sunatimes.com will continue to expand news coverage and newspaper distribution in more regions, and with editions in more
