U.S. Ambassador to Malawi Virginia Palmer and Media Institute of Southern Africa (MISA) Malawi Deputy Chairperson Yvonne Sundu on February 12 addressed the 13 journalists from across Malawi’s media landscape who completed a week-long workshop on investigative journalism specific to financial crimes co-sponsored by the U.S. Embassy and MISA Malawi.

A highlight of the training included a briefing by the spokesperson for the Malawian Ministry of Finance on the progress being made on the implementation of Public Financial Management Reforms in Malawi.  “I have great respect for the incredibly important work you all do as journalists, and I am proud the U.S. Embassy in partnership with MISA Malawi has been able to support your professional development,” said Ambassador Palmer.
