Eric Mwamba

Eric Mwamba’s reports on the Ivorian cocoa mafia, the international trade in young African football players and, most recently, his deep-digging exposure of the system of corruption that reigns in the DRC have been exemplary pieces of investigative journalism. Pioneering an approach whereby he runs ‘long-distance’ investigations with colleagues in different francophone countries, Mwamba networks with many fellow journalists in investigations into resource exploitation in the Congolese and Great Lakes region.
