AfriCOG Investigative Journalism Fellowship Report on Media Corruption
This investigation was carried out under a competitive fellowship awarded to Otsieno Namwaya by Africa Centre for Open Governance (AfriCOG), a civil society organization dedicated to addressing the structural and institutional causes of corruption and bad governance in Kenya.
The AfriCOG fellowship is intended to enhance expertise in investigative journalism, generate a body of incisive investigative reports on key governance, anti-corruption and public interest issues and promote permanent civic vigilance. AfroCOG believes that partnership with the media is critical in promoting permanent civic vigilance because the media plays a key watchdog and agenda-setting role which is necessary for good governance. Yet the media faces capacity constraints, including limited skills development to undertake investigative journalism.
