The Ushahidi engine is now being used to track reports of xenophobia in South Africa at a site called United for Africa. This is the first instance of the tool being used outside of Kenya, so we were happy to get the website up and running in just 36 hours. David did a crack job of it as usual, with the help of Tim Shier of Quirk in South Africa.

If you’re in South Africa, or have friends and family there, then please help get the word out. SMS, email, call your friends and family all over South Africa and get them to tell their friends so that more reports come in. The more that come in, the better the tool.
