Ghanaian investigative journalist Anas Aremeyaw Anas and Tiger Eye Foundation, together with Swedish technology and data platform provider, Klarity, have launched an online corruption platform.
The platform – JeSuisAnas.org – allows users to record and upload videos of everyday corruption.
This collaboration is expected to connect citizens, activists and journalists in Ghana in the fight against corruption.
The online platform, which was provided by Klarity, launched with over 100 uploaded videos from Anas’ latest investigative work into corruption in the Ghanaian football league.
Klarity will provide the technological infrastructure and digital tools to upload videos of corruption unto the platform, while Tiger Eye will serve as editors, and mobilise and encourage activists to share more content on the platform.
Upon a successful rollout, Klarity hopes to extend the platform globally.
“We are very excited to be working with Klarity.
“After many years of working as an investigative journalist and with the Tiger Eye Foundation I have witnessed the difficulty of exposing corruption first hand,” Anas said.
“This platform will allow us to expose not only grand corruption but also petty corruption in a safer way and help mobilize civil society to increase accountability on public institutions.”
Klarity CEO Eliza Kücükaslan also said, “We want to encourage the spread of democracy around the world, based on strong, transparent and well-functioning institutions that citizens can trust.
“Anas and Tiger Eye bring a deep and thorough understanding of activism and journalism to the table, while we provide the tools to engage citizens en masse and multiply their impact.
“We will continue to build partnerships with prominent organisations as we expand Klarity into new countries.”
Tiger Eye Foundation and its founder, Anas Aremeyaw Anas have since Klarity’s inception worked closely together to mobilise activists and investigate cases, according to a release by Klarity.
