Corporate entry: Kakamora Reporter


Kakamora Reporter (1970-1975) was a cyclostyled monthly and occasionally two-monthly publication, which offered a platform for expressing views on current affairs, mainly for the Solomon Islands educated elite. Most of its content was letters to the editor. Contributors aired a variety of perspectives on topics ranging from Black Power to Solomon Islands nationalism. It was the first public voice of Solomon Islanders. For the first issue, March 1970, fifty copies were printed; by the September 1971 issue, circulation had increased to six hundred and the paper was beginning to be distributed overseas. Henry Raraka Koga (q.v.) was the publisher and he and Ella Bugotu were the editors. (NS 30 Sept. 1971; Kakamora Reporter, Oct. 1970, June 1973)
