About Us

Malawi Insider, voice of the people, by the people. Real change will only come when people speak with one voice and towards reclaiming destiny.

Corruption has hit Africa so much. Malawi has not been spared. Malawi Insider seeks to, uncover and report the truth even when it means putting our lives in danger.

Malawi Insider, through the special dedicated page of ‘Insiders’ never sleep but uncover all the questionable dealings by those we entrust with powers to lead us.

Malawi Insider is run by an independently owned, private company with no affiliation to any other media group (or political party or religious organisation.)

We have journalists who do not want to be revealed. Journalists’ safety struggle is real in Malawi. Our news publishing is done from all over, mainly in London, Johannesburg and Lilongwe. We can’t lie; we have editors on asylum in different countries.

Malawi Insider is funded mainly through advertising and donations.

Faith • Trust • Belief

In the years since Malawi Insider’s inception, the proliferation of social networks has brought never-before-seen public participation into the information universe. However, this internet-fuelled revolution also brought the blood on the streets – the blood of truth, trust and accuracy in this now omnipresent landscape of data that passes as news these days.

The fake news hurricane that enveloped most of the planet, sometimes malicious, sometimes a result of a good old bad journalism, threatens to undermine the fundamentals of what we assumed was a developed, open, global democratic establishment based on values of honesty and decency.

We have but only one way to fight this onslaught which, in its essence, is an attack on our civilisation: good journalism.

Our decision, from day one, was to concentrate on quality, accuracy and building of an environment of confidence. Our faith, in both us and you, dear reader, is that we have a relationship of trust, where you can safely believe what you read on Malawi Insider’s pages. We feel we have proven our worth to you, many times over.

Reader Covenant

These are our promises to you, and what we expect from you in return.

Give us a tiny slice of your time and we’ll give you the world. We’ll also throw in a whole lot of fun, just to sweeten the deal.

In the background, there’s a whole lot more to it, of course, but that’s all just detail. Malawi Insider exists to provide you with the news, analysis, insight and opinion that you need. Whether you’re required to make big decisions or just want to hold your own over lunchtime conversation, we’ll provide the tools.

Here’s another promise: we won’t ever waste your time. We don’t let algorithms decide what is important and what is not. Our journalists and editors are humans and some of the best and most experienced ones around at that. They’ve spent decades refining the craft and, by now, they’re pretty good at it.

The result is a service that will tell you what happened yesterday, what’s happening now and what’s going to happen today and tomorrow – and what it all means. The important stuff is all here. But we realise you may need more than that. So we’ll provide you with the social currency you need to talk to your friends about that big game yesterday, or to talk to your office buddies about what the world’s, and South Africa’s, next move is going to be. And we’re not going to let you be ignorant about the latest in arts and culture or science and technology either.

We will always be serious about you being a knowledgeable and fun person.

We’ll do all of that for you, day in and day out, and we’ll do it with the greatest of integrity. Nobody will ever pay for our opinions, no matter the size of the chequebook. We will never sell your private information, or let somebody else dictate our agenda, or conspire behind your back.

You, dear reader, are at the very centre of Malawi Insider universe.
