The backstory

Watch the multimedia piece on Youtube

MisplacedprioitesMost journalists in Kenya are not taking advantage of the Internet to tell dynamic and interactive stories. But Internews in Kenya data journalism fellow Paul Wafula, who is an investigative reporter with The Standard newspaper, has broken the mold with his investigative story: Change for Health.

In the following multimedia piece Wafula explains how he used audio slides, interactive maps, infographics and a news app to tell the story of how much your county government is spending on developing your healthcare, the challenges and the misplaced priorities they face.

The app was developed by Internews data journalism fellow Dan Cheseret who is a developer. Apart from the online version, the story will be published as a five-part series in The Standard newspaper from today until Friday.
