Initially focused on verifying the financial and other statistical numbers quoted by public figures in Kenya, Tanzania and Uganda, PesaCheck now also helps track political promises by politicians (through our Wajibisha toolkit) and helps unpack budget and census data (through our PesaYetu platform). PesaCheck also helps watchdog media and NGOs establish their own standalone fact-check teams.
