In 2016, The Elephant was launched as a platform for dialogue, the pursuit of Truth and the reimagination of state and society, all at a pivotal time for Kenya and Africa. Fast-forward to today, and we find ourselves at a crossroads, ready to evolve into a new phase of our mission.

We’ve outgrown our initial vision, becoming not just a platform but a thriving community seeking authentic narratives, and we are thrilled to share our next chapter with you. We’ve been your trusted Watering Hole, providing a space for outstanding journalism and the sharing of diverse ideas steeped in the African experience.

Now, as we navigate an ever-changing media landscape accelerated by COVID-19 and the digital revolution, we invite you to join us in shaping the future. The Elephant Membership allows us all to share in this journey.
