Spurred on by more comments…

I’d like to start be revisiting a line in Gukira’s post that inspired Pt. I: “We have long complained that the Western press presents a€?rubbish stories,a€? indifferent to a€?real issues.a€?

I’ll take this moment to send out a special request to my readers and Kenyan bloggers who are based in Nairobi . Are you interested in helping […]

In London…
