Umuntu Media and Kata Kata Online Cartoon Magazine today announced a content partnership to supply online audiences in Africa with humorous digital cartoon content.

The cartoons will be featured initially as part of a trial phase on Umuntu Media's three digital platforms in Botswana (www.ibotswana.co.bw), Zambia (www.izambia.co.zm) and Zimbabwe (www.izimbabwe.co.zw).  With plans to roll it out to all platforms.

Johan Nel, Umuntu Media CEO, said that the partnership will provide their audience with quality, humorous content.

"Umuntu Media strives to become a leading lifestyle portal in Africa. We believe that providing such content is as important as supplying our audiences with hard-hitting news of the day," Nel said. "We really look forward to offering our community weekly comic relief across all of our platforms."

Ogo Ubabukoh, Kata Kata's Editor in Chief, said this partnership will help to expand the reach of their content and readership.

"We are going to bring to Umuntu Media's platforms irresistible African stories and ideas in a cartoon form. It is our hope that through Umuntu Media's vast network, we'll keep Africa's cultural realities told through the stories alive by stimulating personal interactions and exchange of ideas among readers," Ubabukoh said.

In a jovial, funny and yet satirical manner, Umuntu Media and Kata Kata will aim to provide African audiences with thought-provoking cartoons.

"It is our belief at Kata Kata that life is not all about seriousness. One needs some laughs and relaxation to face serious challenges in Life," said Ubabukoh.
