Ushahidi launches new Uchaguzi partnership for elections

February 12th, 2013 by Susan Smith

On March 4, 2013, there will be a Kenyan election again. Readers might remember that the innovative company Ushahidi influenced the Kenyan election in 2007 and is now asking the question, what would we do differently if we were to do this again?

Ushahidi, in response to that question, announces the official launch of the Uchaguzi Kenya 2013 partnership. Uchaguzi’s goal is to help Kenya hold a fair and credible election. Uchaguzi is a joint initiative between Ushahidi, Constitution and Reform Education Consortium (CRECO) and Hivos Foundation with the additional support of the Canadian International Development Agency (CIDA). Citizen participation or crowdsourcing is a big part of Uchaguzi’s strategy, with the Uchaguzi platform built on and by Ushahidi. Citizens will be empowered to report any changes they see in the election.
