Corrections Policy

Corrections PolicySuppose new evidence emerges, capable of changing the core of an earlier published check(s), in that case, we clarify, correct or update as a matter of necessity.
For transparency, we will explain the reason(s) for the change. Our readers can also reach out via any of our social media channels in cases where they believe a publication is biased, lacking evidence or devoid of the principles of balance, transparency and truth.
Our research, writing, and editing processes are done painstakingly. This is to ensure we only publish verified information at all times.

As signatories to the IFCN code of principles, you may independently – and without prior approval from us – report any violation to the IFCN. However, we hope that we remain your first port of call so that amendments can quickly be made where necessary.

We are guided by the five principles of the International Fact-Checking Network (IFCN). We seek to check Dis/misinformation, verify claims and debunk fake news around accountability in governance, climate and conflicts in Africa through adequate research, effective use of accessible data as well as technological tools that are important to our work.

We present our findings in short pieces, infographics, pictures, videos, animations and social media posts. We have a strong belief that our work can identify the purveyors of false information, which will discourage false news propagators from disseminating unverified information in the future and help the public know about important issues so that they can make informed decisions.
