MUSEBA Journalism Project is a non profit media organization dedicated to watchdog journalism in Central Africa and the Great Lakes region.
Founded in 2019, MUSEBA which means trumpet in a local Cameroonian language publishes in both English and French. Its projects include international collaborations such as the FinCEN Files, Migrants from Another World, Pandora Papers, etc.
We not only use the tools of fearless journalism to expose wrongdoing in the public and private sector. We train a new generation in adversarial journalism. We push for change.
