Witness on the Web

White African, Kenyan Pundit and others have come up with a tool for mapping and recording incidents of violence in Kenya. Ushahidi – Swahili for witness – looks like a very valuable resource. There is still a ban in place on live broadcasts related to the election here and this seems to be one way of ensuring that information is not being choked off by the government.

I suspect it might have a busy week ahead.
