Who We Are

The African Investigative Publishing Collective (AIPC) is an association of veteran investigative journalists who have dedicated their working -and often also private- lives to the exposure of wrongs in their societies.

It is inspired by a commitment to dig deeper, unearth injustice and uncover truths in the public interest, that is, in the service of democracy, transparency and development.

The AIPC brings you investigative, in-depth stories from the African continent, exposing injustices and digging up hidden truths in the public interest. It publishes in Africa locally and regionally, but also internationally. It does so with a view to impact and social change, both globally and in Africa.

The journalists in the African Investigative Publishing Collective hold African leaders accountable. The AIPC exposes kleptocracy, corruption, and human rights violations. Pro-good governance activists in South Africa, Nigeria, Kenya, Togo, Mozambique, Rwanda, Burundi and elsewhere have publicly expressed the need for more investigative journalism to expose and counter oppression and plunder.

However, investigative journalism in Africa is desperately unsupported and underfunded. Not only is our work often risky; we also lack editorial support, time and resources. It is only through grants and project funding that we can do what we do.
