Public editor of Kenya’s Nairobi Star says the paper is publishing more corrections to better serve readers:

If readers have noticed a recent uptick in corrections, they can claim much of the credit. Following a public editor’s column offering readers’ opinions on why regular acknowledgement of errors would be a good idea, and several discussions by editors, it was decided to adopt a ‘more rather than less’ corrections policy. Many days now you’ll find a blue-tinted box on page 2 headed ‘For the Record’, along with an invitation to write to the editors to bring possible errors to their attention.
