The Next Web?


How about this for transparency, it is called Uchaguzi? In Kenya the government have implemented an infrastructure that surfaces everything that is going on in the country. It is the Kenyan citizens that report into this using their social media, e.g. SMS, twitter, email, etc.

The interface is simple to understand. It has in red colour the negative disturbances and in green the peaceful events for example.

I love it!
I wonder what Uchaguzi means? It is Swahili apparently.
