Africa Day 2015

Africa Day 2015

Towards the end of April, Cerebra, an integrated strategic communication agency that builds, engages and activates communities around brands got in touch asking me to share what Africa looks like through my eyes. It was quite an honour and I was excited at the prospects of my images being used in a highlight video to be released on Africa Day, which is celebrated on May 25th.

Kangemi’s Routemaster

Kangemi’s Routemaster

In the last couple of months, there’s been a lot of talk about phasing out 14-seater matatus in favour of higher capacity buses. This is in an effort to decongest Nairobi’s streets and hopefully have more people preferring public over private transport. But will 35 or 50 seater buses solve the problem? Why not have buses with higher capacity?

#147NotJustANumber Vigil

#147NotJustANumber Vigil

When news started coming in of the Garissa Attack last Thursday, I held my breath and went into a cocoon, not wanting to believe the reality. It turned out to be my least favourite Easter weekend, occasionally coming up for air to receive updates on social media about what happened and what shouldn’t have. On Monday, I saw a tweet about Tuesday’s vigil and decided to attend.

Aluta Continua!

Aluta Continua!

On February 13th 2013, Boniface Mwangi organised what was to be his last protest. After leading several demonstrations against ills in the country, he felt Kenya wasn’t worth dying for and his family needed him more. I followed Boniface from home to his office to Uhuru Park where the demonstration was dispersed by anti-riot police.

Flying Drones in Kenya

Flying Drones in Kenya

There’s been a lot of interest in the operation of unmanned aerial aircraft in Kenya in the recent past and especially this week, with two mainstream media outlets publishing different drone-related stories on the same day. And for this reason, my long break from blogging has come to an end.

Moments with Myles

Moments with Myles

I woke up this morning to the news of the passing of Dr Myles Munroe, his wife and others in Bahamas. I usually get sad when I hear of the death of someone I knew, but not this time. There was a sense of celebration in me. Celebration of the life of a man who gave his all to make God’s word understood to me, to know the power I have within me. His greatest lesson to me: Die empty. This is something I believe he did.

Shooting Kenyan Farmers

Shooting Kenyan Farmers

Despite many Kenyans ‘going digital’, farming still remains our major economic activity, employing and providing for the livelihoods of more people than any other industry in the country. For the last six months, I’ve had the privilege to get off the super highways and onto the unpaved roads leading to farms that produce what will be on your plate this evening. This was thanks to USAID through the Kenya Horticultural Competitiveness Project that is implemented by Fintrac.

The Bawa Story

The Bawa Story

Every January, many people look for a fresh start, which is a great thing to do.

One thing I’d like to suggest is signing up for Mizizi, a 10-week experience that connects you with God, sheds light on what He made you for, and starts you on a journey towards greatness with like-minded fearless influencers. One person whom I’ve seen transformed is Nzilani Anne-Muoki. Her’s is a story of discovery of purpose that has not only benefited her family, but hundreds in Kibera and Korogocho through Bawa, an fair trade organisation she runs with her husband.
