ACHUKA Book of the Day 6 Nov 2020
Adult readers wanting factual background should read Murder In Malta in The New Yorker by Ben Taub and this page on the Forbidden Stories website.
Daphne Caruana Galizia was killed by a car bomb on 16 October 2017. If her enemies thought that would be the end of her story, they were wrong.
What does it take to be an investigative journalist and discover the truth against all the odds? Daphne Caruana Galizia had a happy childhood with her family on the small island of Malta, loving books, stories and writing.
When she succeeded in her ambition to become a journalist, she discovered that there was much to write about in her home country. She found that greedy and corrupt politicians were making themselves rich rather than working for the good of their people. Fearlessly, Daphne exposed criminal and dishonest activities. Her enemies responded with threats and insults to discourage her from revealing more. But nothing could dissuade Daphne from fighting for what she believed in.
