Comments Policy

Here at Africa Times we welcome comments and encourage you to give your opinion. You do not need to become a user but you do need to provide us with your name and email address.

All the comments are pre-moderated by the editorial staff before your comment goes live on our site. This is to ensure that comments are not abusive or threatening, spam/advertising, off-topic or defamatory.

We encourage our users to leave comments that are:

  • Short and concise
  • Relevant to the piece
  • Respectful and do not include inappropriate language
  • Contributing to intellectual debate or corrections to the piece

If you see a comment that you believe is in breach of this policy please write to contact (at) africatimes (dot) com. Please make sure the subject line contains “Comments breach”.
