Truth-seeking

We actively seek the truth by investigating claims and using a diverse range of sources to weigh the veracity of information that is brought into the public domain.

Truth-telling

We not only seek the truth, we consider it a matter of patriotic duty to tell the truth. We don’t take sides in any debate but we do stand for the truth.

Fact-checking

We discredit falsehoods, no matter who states them. We present the facts without fear or favor. Fact checking is our way of rescuing the political discourses of Malawi from polarisation, willful misrepresentation and malicious misinformation that can potentially undermine our democracy. We defend Malawi by defending the truth.

OBJECTIVE

We value objectivity and believe we owe it to Malawians to present them with the plain facts. Our approach is investigative and research-driven.

PATRIOTIC

We care about our homeland, Malawi. Governments will come and go but our country will remain. We set the record straight, wherever and whenever lies threaten our democracy.

FACTUAL

Facts are sacrosanct to us. We believe in the dictum that everyone is entitled to his or her opinion but no one is entitled to his or her own facts.
