The Early Issues of the First Newspaper in Hausa Gaskiya ta fi Kwabo, 1939–1945

  • John Edward Philips

The first years of Gaskiya ta fi Kwabo, the oldest Hausa newspaper, have recently been made available online for research. They provide a sometimes idiosyncratic perspective on the Second World War.

Récemment, les premiers numéros de Gaskiya ta fi Kwabo, le journal Hausa le plus ancien, sont disponibles sur Internet. Leur lecture nous donne une perspective parfois idiosyncratique de la Deuxième Guerre Mondiale.
