Helping Rwanda get access to informationBy Tumenye Digital
Organisation URL: http://www.tumenye.rw/
Rwanda passed its Freedom of Information (FOI) legislation in 2013; now there’s a new online platform to allow citizens to access this information and make FOI requests. Sobanukirwa is designed to make it easy for anyone to find or request information from public and private organisations in Rwanda for free. Information can be requested from hundreds of organisations without needing to know the details of the person, or travelling from a remote location to a central office.
To ensure everyone benefits from the release of public information, Sobanukirwa makes all information requests and replies available on the web, in anonymised form. The website is available in English, French and Kinyarwanda, so all can read it.
