Bartamaha is a Somali word Â Â Translation:Â The Center
Bartamaha Media aims to be the place for people interested in tracking genuine
Somali Content Online– i.e. other than most media coverage. This is sometimes
necessary as media outlets do not always cover all events, and coverage is at
times either scanty, biased in one way or another, or not comprehensive enough.
Bartamaha Somali Media does not support any particular political movement or
party, and we also do not believe the modern political context can easily be
divided up into “Rightwing”, “Leftwing”, or “Groups and Tribes”. Even though the owner and contributors obviously hold personal views, which can be evident at times
in the image captions, this is not deliberate and we aim to bring you the news as it happened.
We at Bartamaha Somali Media believe that Videos or images tell their
own story, and quite often captions are not even necessary. Readers are welcome to make up their own minds about events after viewing the video or images.
