MISA and UNDP spearhead journalism training in South Africa

The Media Institute of Southern Africa (MISA) and the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) coordinated a three-day training session on "Investigating and Reporting Corruption" in Johannesburg, South Africa in early December. The objective was to strengthen the media's ability to undertake investigative reporting on corruption. The training brought together participants from Malawi, Zambia, Zimbabwe, South Africa, Botswana, Namibia, Swaziland, Lesotho, Mozambique, Tanzania and Angola.

Participants learned of each country's weaknesses and strengths in combating corruption and gained a better understanding of international tools, such as the United Nations Convention against Corruption (UNCAC). MISA expects the workshop and resulting report will provide a useful training tool across the region to provide increased protection and skills to reporters.
