About UsNews Diggers! is Zambia’s first multimedia publication focused on investigative journalism. It comprises a team of experienced journalists with a blend of new and dedicated talent eager to shape the art of digital journalism. As a growing democracy, Zambia needs a free and critical press to foster accountability and good governance. News Diggers! will help facilitate this as we have an ear to the ground.
Joseph (Editor-In-Chief) has over ten years experience in investigative reporting. He studied Newspaper management and Media Leadership at Rhodes University under the Sol Plaatje Institute in South Africa. He also studied Digital Journalism and Investigative Reporting at the International Academy of Journalism in Germany. As Deputy Managing Editor and News Editor at The Post Newspaper, Mwenda led a team of about 30 journalists, bringing investigative reporting skills at the apex of Zambian media. Mwenda helped bring out a number of corruption scandals and suspected electoral malpractices, exposés which later led to the closure of the newspaper weeks before a decisive general election in 2016. He led The Post newsroom until November 2, 2016 when the newspaper was liquidated.
