I’ve always been interested in understanding, and perhaps changing, the nature of Kenya through my work, which until now has consisted of writing and speaking. This has been edifying, but I’ve come to appreciate how hard it is to keep up with. Every week there is something new to expose, learn or discover, and unless your line of work requires that you keep updated, it becomes difficult to do so.
So I thought, what if there was a place we could go and ask whatever we want, and have it explained to us in a succinct way, while not being too reductive – avoiding a lecture, and gaining a perspective that was outside that on mainstream traditional and new media? Then I asked myself, what if I built that place? So I did.
Welcome to Otherwise, a weekly show that explores Kenyan current affairs issues as chosen by you.
