iLAB

An investigative lab to build data-driven forensic technologies

Committed to better journalism

Kenya’s investigative journalism is largely personality-focused muckraking, driven by leaks or unnamed sources and is vulnerable to manipulation by shadowy political puppet masters and crime cabals. To change this, iLAB Kenya provides journalists and newsroom partners open source tools and a wealth of knowledge and expertise needed to establish in-house investigative data desks that produce evidence-based research, forensic analysis and data-driven journalism
