South Sudan: AMDISS Trains Journalists in Investigative Journalism

The Association of Media Development in South Sudan (AMDISS) in partnership with the United Kingdom Embassy in South Sudan on March 3 to 5, 2021 enhanced the capacity of some journalists in investigative journalism.

At least 20 journalists from different media outlets in Juba, the capital city of South Sudan, took part in a three day-fellowship on Basic Investigative Journalism that sought to fill the gap of basic skills in investigative journalism and equipped journalists with both essential theoretical and practical skills as an introduction to the crucial field of investigative reporting in South Sudan.

This important training on basic investigative skills is expected to ignite the passion for critical reporting on public issues and contribute to transparent and accountable governance in South Sudan.

AFEX urges the media and journalists in South Sudan to play their constitutionally mandated roles of public information and abide by the ethics and standards of professional journalism. We also, call on other diplomatic institutions, agencies, and other international and national civil society organizations to continuously support media development interventions so the media can play its critical role of contribution to the consolidation of peace and sustainable development in South Sudan.
