Author(s): Awori,K.

Umati was launched in October 2012, six months before the Kenya general elections (held on March 4, 2013) and consists of two phases. Umati I was primarily an online monitoring project that collected and analysed hate and dangerous speech statements from the Kenyan online space around the 2013 general elections. Umati II was initiated in July 2013 and is ongoing. Umati II's main goal is to build an intelligent tool that can perform the duties of Umati I, for projects outside Kenya, and beyond election periods.
