Evelyn Groenink

Evelyn Groenink co-founded the ‘Forum for African Investigative Reporters’ network of and for investigative journalists in Africa and served as its director between 2005 and 2011. Among her own investigations, the quest to find the truth behind the assassinations of Dulcie September, Chris Hani and a number of other Southern African freedom fighters stands out. She also coordinated the Transnational Investigation “Pirates, oil smugglers and corrupt tycoons”,  into crime-fuelled economic growth in Africa, and “The FairTrade chocolate rip-off”, into the unfulfilled promises of the FairTrade empire. She now produces, edits and publishes both individual and collaborative investigations by African investigative journalists for ZAM Chronicle.
