A new study done by Tawanda Majoni explores the achievements, challenges and opportunities identified within four developing investigative journalism centres in southern Africa. The research sites have recorded notable impact in various aspects that include story production, programmatic expansion and collaborations. They are, however, burdened by over-dependence on donor support, which they, on the other hand, all acknowledge to be unsustainable in its current form. The study makes a call for the restructuring of donor support to non-profit investigative journalism hubs, which are also supposed to adopt strategies for in-house revenue generation.
