afriLEAKS allows whistleblowers to leak confidential documents of public interest. The system helps them leak these these materials while protecting their own identities, making it difficult to identify the sources of leaked information. This site also allows whistleblowers to stay in touch with reporters and answer further questions without revealing your name or contact information.
afriLEAKS is built on security software created by the Hermes Center for Transparency and Digital Human Rights and the open source GlobaLeaks toolkit, using methodologies first pioneered by Publeaks in the Netherlands. afriLEAKS has customized both the technology and deployment models to better suit resource-challenged newsrooms.
It is run by an alliance of African news organizations, including the Mail & Guardian, the Premium Times, the Daily Monitor and the Botswana Guardian.
