Social Media for Human Rights Activists

I was in Gaborone, Botswana last week at the invitation of the African Human Rights Consortium to train Human Rights activists from across Africa on how to use social media tools to inform their work.

The Democracy of Social Media

For a long while, the basis on which someone was tagged an authority in a given field was largely dictated by the mainstream media. This to a large extent is still true given my own euphoria over being largely quoted in the Business Daily. “(S)he even appeared in the paper/TV” has been a line repeated […]

My good friend, Githii, told me an interesting story that just spelt anecdote. He told me of this kid in primary school who was sent to the shop by his teacher to buy a bottle of soda. The soda was opened and the temptation to taste it overwhelmed his fear for the teacher. So he […]


Blogging in Kenyan Schools: New Age of Writing

Way back in the late 90’s when I was in class 8 was the time I realized that I might actually like writing, just for fun of course. My mum had given me her small Collins dictionary that was older than me and with it my vocabulary got better and better. I always looked forward […]
