Always bear in mind that the people are not fighting for ideas, for the things in anyone’s head. They are fighting to win material benefits, to live better and in peace, to see their lives go forward, to guarantee the future of their children. – Amilcar Cabral [Tell no lies, Claim no easy victories…]
Dear Friends and Foes,
Yet again, the festive season is upon us.
A year is drawing to a close, when we fought illegitimate decisions, mismanagement, and corruption in Homa-Bay County and in Central Government Institutions and the business sector while revealing the contradictions to the public stage – with glimmers of hope.
We are aware our readers care about our country and especially our county. They want to see a county more open, accountable and just. They also know that a free and independent press is critical to getting there.
So when deciding what to give to your nearest in the coming year 2019, please consider making a small donation to our investigative journalism centre.
Earning Trust with Credible Content
Since the advent of devolved government, there is an ever urgent need to counter the silence, fake news and alternative facts – which is information depending more on a person’s point of view rather than actual reality – that has wormed its way into our collective psyche over the administration of Homa-Bay county.
When combined with the revelations of bias [or silence] of mainstream media and of course social media accounts [and bloggers] being used to purposefully spread biased, inaccurate, or falsified stories. – We think you deserve better!
Bendaburu.com owes you a lot more in accurate information on the happenings in the county. With your help, we can expose more wrongdoing and empower people to work for change.
We believe that the story we published today – about how the ideal of county empowerment was twisted by County Capture Cartel to make public servants and the politically connected very rich from projects that should serve the poor – shows the solidity and value of our work.
The same could be said of this exposé about evidence connecting the County Capture Cartel to the plunder of public resources in Homa-Bay County .
Thank you for your support this year, and happy festive season and new year – as we continue to serve you “with nothing sacred by the truth”
