The role of the media is critical in promoting good governance and controlling corruption. It not only
raises public awareness about corruption, its causes, consequences and possible remedies but also investigates
and reports incidences of corruption. The effectiveness of the media, in turn, depends on
access to information and freedom of expression, as well as a professional and ethical cadre of investigative
journalists.One wonders are some these journalists really professionals? kudos to the likes of Mohhamed Juma and Allan Namu who have put up a brave fight against this vice but the question is are our reporters safe after unveiling some very sensitive issues that affect us all?
