Afrileaks is now officially launched. it is a site that allows you to leak confidential documents of public interest.
AfriLeaks allows you to leak confidential documents of public interest. A system designed to helps you to share these materials while protecting your own identity, making it very hard to identify you as the source of the leak.
Afrileaks has a unique approach from wikileaks , Unlinke Wikileaks , Afrileaks does not release information directly to the public, according to Khadija Sharife of the African Network of Centers for Investigative Reporting (ANCIR) – the organization that hosts the platform.
“[AfriLeaks will] provide a secure tool for connectivity between the whistleblowers and the media who then investigate the substance and character of the leak,” she told DW in an interview ahead of the launch.
AfriLeaks is not about disclosure It aims is to provide leads to News Agencies /Investigative Journalists by pointing them in the right direction.
Whereas the aim of Wikileaks has been to publish and disclose information, AfriLeaks is there to provide leads for stories to media and research organizations. The new platform will allow whistleblowers to choose the media or research organization to which they want to send the information.
AfriLeaks is just one of many initiatives aiming to make whistleblowing easier on a continent plagued by corruption and a lack of transparency. Another Whistle blowing Platform is Wildleaks which is the first, secure online whistleblower platform to wildlife & Forest Crime founded by Andrea Crosta. Which has helped Empower Everyone To Save Wildlife.
