KICTANet

KICTANet is a multi-stakeholder think tank for people and institutions interested and involved in ICT policy and regulation in Kenya. The think tank is a catalyst for reform in the Information and Communication Technology sector. Its work is guided by four pillars of policy advocacy, capacity building, research, and stakeholder engagement.

PesaCheck

PesaCheck is a pioneering verification initiative that is helping kickstart fact-checking across East Africa. 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.
