The slum series – Voice of Kibera

Kibera slumNAIROBI, Kenya — Kibera is known as Africa’s largest slum. It’s located in Nairobi, Kenya and home to a new media renaissance. Featuring the voices of Vincent Achuka, editor and journalist at the Ghetto Mirror, Sande Wycliffe, programmer at the online news platform, Voice of Kibera, and Douglas Namale, founder and editor of Mtani Insight (formerly Kibera Journal).

I had the chance to take a tour around Kibera with the journalists from Ghetto Mirror to understand how youth in the slum want change, and are willing to use new media to get their message out to the world.

#Indonesia: Snapshots of #Medan.  I want to share a great passage in the book I’m reading at the moment. Pramoedya Ananta Toer’s The Mute’s Soliloquy: a memoir. From Southeast Asia to sub Saharan Africa, multinationals have been stealing resources from indigenous people since the end of colonialism. Time to learn how to stop the theft and corrupt measures used by leaders to fool the people. This book makes me defiant, as Toer spent 14 years as a political prisoner on the island of Buru.
