Initiative Description

JamiiForums is a Tanzania-based user-generated content Website founded by Maxence Melo and Mike Mushi in 2006. Members of the Website can comment on existing topics or start new topics. The Website has been viewed by some as a whistle-blowing platform as citizens blow the whistle on issues that concern the public. Topics on the Website range from politics, corruption and governance, and over time the site has become a source of breaking news and a secure whistleblowing platform. The founders of the Website have advocated for freedom of media and social networking in Tanzania. The Website is notable as the most popular social media Website in Tanzania, according to AllAfrica.
