With no less than six members of ZAM’s partner the African Investigative Publishing Collective presenting their deep-digging stories, plus the showing of Anas Aremeyaw Anas’ undercover documentary ‘Justice!’, plus a book launch on 75 years of investigative journalism on the African continent, plus the Global Shining Light Award for investigative journalism awarded to AIPC member the Premium Times, African investigative journalists occupied their deserved place on the international stage at the recently held Global Investigative Journalism Conference in Johannesburg (16-18 November.)

With the highlights of the presentations at the conference featured on the main Global Investigative Journalism Network website www.gijn.org, links to the African contributions were tweeted by @gijnAfrica.
