African Investigative Journalism Conference
1 february 2017

For the past two years I have been in charge of the programme of the African Investigative Journalism Conference, an annual event organized by the Journalism Programme of the University of the Witwatersrand (Wits University) in Johannesburg, South Africa. It is Africa’s premier investigative journalism conference. The conference gives African and international investigative journalists an opportunity to learn new skills, hear about the top investigative stories and share experience. This year I will be involved in organizing the Global Investigative Journalism Conference.
