This website is an online version of Runta Somali News Magazine which has been in print since 1995. The online version is dedicated to the readers who may miss the paper, and it is regularly updated. We mainly cover stories that concern the Somalis wherever they are, but also cover stories that interests Muslims and Africans. The first copy of Runta was published in Nairobi, Kenya where it had the largest number of readers before it moved. It is based in Seattle, WA. We focus these days on young Somalis who grew up in the US and Canada by adding subjects to our content that matters to the young. The paper is bilingual Somali and English, and it is published bi-weekly. Some Somalis recognize Runta as the best entertaining magazine they had ever come in contact with. Our slogan has always been: Dhis Kartidadaada. Dhis Aqoontaada. Dhis Niyaddaada. Akhri Runta. Runta Waa Tan Kaliya ee Ku Qancisa. In English: Build your ability. Build your knowledge. Build your moral. Read Runta. Runta is the only one that satisfies you.
