The website is aimed at encouraging fact-based and impartial reporting on good governance and corruption in Kenya. It points to original sources, provides reporting ideas and gives hints on how to follow-up on specific stories that are in the news.
The Idea behind RoGGKenya
The site was developed from DW Akademie trainings with radio journalists in the Rift Valley, Western and Nyanza regions. In these trainings it became apparent that a simple way should be found to leave opinion-based reporting and head for fact-based reporting on genuine self researched stories. RoGGKenya tries to facilitate this shift of perspective by providing the necessary resources at the fingertips or on the smartphones of journalists.
