African Investigative Journalism

The Forum for African Investigative Reporters (FAIR) has a website highlighting investigative reports from the continent.

Some of the headlines of recent reports offer an intriguing glimpse into the work being done:

KENYA: Tough working conditions and risky sex on tea plantations
Massive exports deplete fish stocks in Lake Victoria
Environment criminals build $10bn empire on ivory, timber and skins
Region Awash With Fake Malaria Medicine

On a more practical level, the site also offers a service that identifies affiliated reporters in different African countries. This can help journalists around the world to link up with an investigative reporter on the ground in Africa.
