Greetings and Salutations fellow Africans and Earthlings.
We are Anonymous Africa and we were asked to write a short blog explaining our motivations. By now you may have noticed some of our ops hitting Southern Africa. We hope you like our work. We would like to thank you for the overwhelming support you are giving us.
So far our targets have included:
- IOL – A partly South African government owned media publication that pushed pro-Mugabe propaganda – www.iol.co.za
- ZANU-PF – The website for the completely corrupt ruling party in Zimbabwe – www.zanupf.org.zw
- Zimbabwean Herald – The ZANU-PF owned puppet media publication – www.herald.co.zw
- ZIMRA – The Zimbabwe Revenue Service, the Zim tax collectors – www.zimra.co.zw
- ZIM MOD – The Zimbabwe Ministry of Defence – www.mod.gov.zw
- ANC – The corrupt ruling political party in South Africa that supports Mugabe – www.anc.org.za
Why are we upset?
TWe believe most of Africa’s modern day problems stem from corrupt and evil leaders that have sold the people out (mostly to corrupt private commercial interests). Much of Africa has entered a cycle of corruption and we believe we are the generation to start breaking up that cycle. Not only can the youth of Africa change Africa. They have to.
Who are we?
The Hacker Manifesto best describes who we are:
“This is our world now… the world of the electron and the switch, the beauty of the baud. We make use of a service already existing without paying for what could be dirt-cheap if it wasn’t run by profiteering gluttons, and you call us criminals. We explore… and you call us criminals. We seek after knowledge… and you call us criminals. We exist without skin color, without nationality, without religious bias… and you call us criminals. You build atomic bombs, you wage wars, you murder, cheat, and lie to us and try to make us believe it’s for our own good, yet we’re the criminals.”
We are a tight collective of hackers and coders. Some of our members have been part of anonymous since their origins in the Scientology protests. We have been involved in previous ops from around the world including and not limited to, South America, South East Asia and Europe.
What are we doing?
Following what happening in the Middle East we are hoping to help start the launch of the African spring. We believe that the Internet is the last place that free speech truly exists. We hope to use whatever skills and abilities we have to bring as much attention to the crimes and corruptions of our African leaders.
What do we have planned for the future?
We have many non-violent forms of electronic protest planned. We also hope in the near future to release an African specific version of wikileaks where Africans can expose corruption without fear.
