There is a new website AfricaOverflow, designed to promote freedom of expression and the free flow of ideas through questions, answers and discussions in relation to any topic (politics, technology, religion, news, music, health, education, etc) especially those concerning Africa and the rest of the word. 

I think this website offers an interesting opportunity for freedom of expression while still maintaining privacy as they have chosen to comply with the principles of the Article 19 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights 1948 "Everyone has the right to freedom of opinion and expression; this right includes freedom to hold opinions without interference and to seek, receive and impart information and ideas through any media and regardless of frontiers." Moreover, they aim to follow the Declaration of Principles on Freedom of Expression in Africa, African Commission on Human and Peoples' Rights 2002, the EU Data Protection Directive and the OECD Recommendation on Cross-border Co-operation in the Enforcement of Laws Protecting Privacy as mentioned on their privacy statement on www.africaoverflow.com ;

It was launched on November 28, 2014 and is "fresh on the block" so sparsely populated. The possibilities are endless once they manage to get content, as people can be informed about scholarships, news, food, religion and just about anything concerning the "Motherland". I have made a few posts myself, which sparked interesting responses.

Take a look on the website: www.africaoverflow.com
