Eric Mwamba

Eric Mwamba is  a Congolese investigative journalist who won international acclaim for, among other stories, his reports on the Ivorian cocoa mafia; the international trade in young African football players and, most recently, his deep-digging exposure of the system of corruption that reigns in the DRC. Mwamba's work has been published in the DRC, Belgium, Germany, South Africa and the United States. He visited the Netherlands in 2013 to research a subject that is a tad unusual for him: the old Dutch tradition of Sinterklaas and his helper 'Black Pete'.
