Citizen Journalists Training

ABOUT

Debra has trained more than 20 citizen journalists news writing and investigative journalism skills. The citizen journalists serve as watchdogs in their communities to report on the various developments taking place and making sure local authorities are accountable and transparent when carrying out their duties. The training was meant to capacitate citizen journalists with the skills to write news stories documenting corruption cases in their communities. The stories they wrote were published in a newsletter called Hayibo S’khangele which means ‘We Are Watching’ an advocacy tool that has been used to unearth and report corruption in communities in Matabeleland province in Zimbabwe.
