The Science Of ...

The story of amaBhungane (and how it’s digging up dung on the Guptas & friends)

Investigative journalism is risky and expensive.

Craig McKune, amaBhungane Centre for Investigative Journalism

The Gupta emails are real… the process of obtaining the data has gone through due diligence… we’re checking facts and corroborating… the way it’s corroborating is impossible to make up… We stand by everything we’ve published in the #GuptaLeaks…

Craig McKune, amaBhungane Centre for Investigative Journalism

We haven’t been approached by the South African authorities, per se.

Craig McKune, amaBhungane Centre for Investigative Journalism

The amaBhungane Centre for Investigative Journalism is a non-profit company founded to develop investigative journalism in the public interest.

Transparency is key.

Craig McKune, amaBhungane Centre for Investigative Journalism

When we started reporting on the #GuptaLeaks we hired security… We’re not necessarily safe…

Craig McKune, amaBhungane Centre for Investigative Journalism

We don’t think Black First Land First (BLF) is a credible threat… They’re paid hacks…

Craig McKune, amaBhungane Centre for Investigative Journalism

We can’t promise our emails aren’t hacked… the safest way to deliver tipoffs is in hardcopy…
