Who we are
Many in the world are heralding the dawn of an “African Millennium” culturally and politically. Africa is poised to undergo more changes and wield more influence in the world than ever before. Until now, much of what is visually documented about Africa is a view from outside, seen through eyes that are not African and, in some cases, not Africa friendly. We believe that it is only Africans that can tell their stories to the world and in that manner will gain renewed respect and authentically express their promising future. Based on this background, Codewit World News was founded. Our mission is to provide a global voice for Africans to tell their own stories to the world.
As it is said, youth are the backbone of society. This is no different in Africa. But sadly, African youth is left without a spine. In an attempt to mobilize African’s young minds, for them to believe and own their future not to mention pave the way for the next generation, it’s imperative, therefore, that they are exposed to an alternative media source. An information outlet designed to highlight the diabolical historical past of our colonial experience & ancestors with a vision of a New Africa. Codewit.com is a news website dedicated to promoting Africa’s independence from global influences.
Codewit World News (CWN) is an outstanding, groundbreaking website that encourages citizen journalists to report on ongoing corruption and government malfeasance in Africa.

To pursue this vision vigorously, the founder, Mr Onwutalobi separated it from the main organization and made it a subsidiary of Codewit Global Network which is a non-profit organization that deals with African immigrants in Diaspora
