JOHANNESBURG, (CAJ News) – LEADING pan-African news agency, Centre for African Journalists (CAJ) News, announced plans to expand its presence in South Africa.

CAJ News Africa Chief Executive Officer, Savious-Parker Kwinika, who said the company would make the most out of the closure of a prominent news agency, as announced on Friday, would extend its coverage of South Africa from the current five provinces to nine.

CAJ News will be expanding our news coverage to all nine provinces of the
country. We will give the South African newspapers, radio stations, TV
channels and online publications value for money,” he said.

“When we launched in January 2006 in Braamfontein, Johannesburg, we knew
that we were the future for South Africa and Africa. We did not doubt the
innovation our dynamic team has, and were convinced our opportunity to
supply all local newspapers, online publications, radio stations, IT online and TV channels would come,” Kwinika said.

He continued, “When we eventually became Africa’s top news service
provider, we knew it will be always easier to takeover the news
distribution market in South Africa. With divine support, as a pan African
news service provider, we shall continue to grow and provide quality
content to our numerous clients.”

Headquartered in Johannesburg, CAJ News Africa has a presence in Gauteng,
Mpumalanga, KwaZulu Natal, Western Cape, Limpopo and North West Provinces.

Internationally, the agency has a presence in a number of African
countries including South Africa, Nigeria, Kenya, Ghana, Rwanda, Uganda,
Egypt, Namibia, Lesotho, Swaziland, Mozambique, Angola, DRC, Malawi, South
Sudan, Tanzania, Zambia and Zimbabwe.

CAJ News supplies the country’s top selling newspaper – Daily Sun, and
sister publication, Sunday Sun with news content from across Africa.

Other notable clients include News24, AllAfrica, FinNews Africa, MetroSA
News, TechnoAfrica, ItNews Africa, Asianet Pakistan, MakambaOnline, Mining
News Africa, and Energy News Africa.

The announcement of the expansion plans coincided with the imminent
closure of the South African Press Agency (SAPA).

The news SAPA will cease operations at the end of March owing to
viability challenges.
