Tanzania: Kagera Journalists Study Investigative Journalism

INVESTIGATIVE reporters should ensure that they dig deeper and should not leave any stone unturned.

Also, they should cultivate a culture of having a deadline when doing their investigative stories. A seasoned journalist, Fili Karashani, made the challenge on the first day of a six-day investigative workshop being attended by 18 scribes members of the Kagera Press Club (KPC), being held in Bukoba Municipality.

He urged reporters for print and media outlets to always take into consideration the requirement of their listeners and readers. "Avoid personal interests," he emphasized.

KPC Chairman, John Rwekanika, said the workshop was a continuation of trainings being undertaken by the Union of Tanzania Press Clubs (UTPC) in collaboration with regional press clubs.
