Pan-African Whistleblowing Platform AfriLeaks Launched

| By: Lindsay Beck

“The primary purpose of afriLeaks is to provide a highly secure vehicle between whistleblowers and the media or investigative NGOs of their choice to allow for both connections and protection between both,” says journalist and ANCIR member Khadija Sharife to techPresident. According to Sharife, “afriLeaks itself acts as a neutral platform” enabling possible whistleblowers to submit documents to selected news outlets and journalists with the help of a safe digital and anonymous conduit that doesn’t track any information about its own sources. The adopted technologies are GlobaLeaks and Tor2Web, open-source software designed and coded by the Italian NGO Hermes Center for Transparency and Human Digital Rights, afriLeaks’ technology partner.
