Africa Investigates is a documentary series that gives some of Africa’s best journalists the opportunity to pursue high-level investigative targets across the continent – using their unique perspective and local knowledge to put corruption, exploitation and abuse under the spotlight. The series is produced by Insight TWI and commissioned by the Al Jazeera International news network.

Africa Investigates was conceived by award winning African journalists and investigators Sorious Samura and Anas Aremeyaw Anas together with Diarmuid Jeffreys of Al Jazeera and Ron McCullagh of Insight News TV (now Insight TWI: The World Investigates).

All too often in the past, African reporters have not been able to pursue wrongdoing because it involves powerful figures who wield undue influence over local media – financial, corporate or political – or because it is simply too dangerous. Investigative journalism is a perilous profession in many African nations, where intimidation, beatings, imprisonment and death threats can be an occupational hazard. As a result they have often had to sit idly by while Africa’s story has been told by Western correspondents, “parachuted in” for the purpose, who reinforce stereotypical views about African people and their supposed inability to face up to and solve their own problems.

It is this trend that Africa Investigates seeks to correct.

Since the launch of the first series in 2011, Africa Investigates has empowered African investigative journalists to produce impactful and award winning documentary films that have revealed the truth about corruption and abuse across the continent (See list of some notable films and synopsis attached).

Now in its third season, Africa Investigates seeks to empower even more African Investigative journalists to tackle the biggest and most important stories across the continent.
