afriLEAKS keeps whistleblowers safe by letting them share information without revealing their identities. The site allows whistleblowers to stay in touch with reporters and answer follow-up questions while remaining anonymous.
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.
The site is run by an alliance of African news organizations, including the Mail & Guardian, the Premium Times, the Daily Monitor and the Botswana Guardian.
