Generic postcard for WikiAfrica Hour

WikiAfrica Hour is a monthly vodcast to support the activities of the WikiAfrica movement and wikimedians across Africa.

WikiAfrica Hour intends to:

  • Share current updates, and highlights of Africa Wikimedians activities
  • Interact with guest(s) (if any), and take questions from community members
  • Promote synergy within the Wiki community by discussing topics, projects, constraints, collaborations, and opportunities.

WikiAfrica Hour is activated by Wiki In Africa in support of Wikimedia usergroups across the WikiAfrica movement. It has been initiated and facilitated by Wiki In Africa's Ceslause Ogbonnaya (User:Ceslause), Florence Devouard (User:Anthere) and Isla Haddow-Flood (User:Islahaddow).


  • The vodcast which has so far broadcasted 7 episodes, plus Wikimania 2021 special edition, has been viewed over 1000 times on YouTube.
  • The vodcast has welcomed 39 guest speakers from both within the Wikimedia movement and outside of it, who have shared diverse knowledge that benefits the WikiAfrica Hour audience

Rundown of past episodes[edit]

You can find more details on past and upcoming episodes in the Episodes section of the WikiAfrica Hour meta page. The Newsroom section is for updates about current activities of user groups, volunteer groups or projects. You may visit the Team section should you need to contact any member of the WikiAfrica Hour team.
