The Zambian Watchdog (www.zambianwatchdog) publishes breaking news on Zambia and about Zambia on a 24 hour basis. We also publish investigative special reports. We write news regardless of whom or what the subject is.
We fear no one and we favour no one. We are mostly interested in politics and exposing crime and those working against public interest.
We monitor public officials and those who seek public office.
The Zambian Watchdog is not associated with or connected to any political, religious or any other interest group. We are hundred per cent independent. Currently the Watchdog is operated in exile in Europe but all our reporters are in Zambia.
With donor support, we are in the process of expanding and accelerating our work.
We are currently recruiting journalists to join our network of correspondents.
