Kenya Imagine Website-Revamped!
Kenya,s premier online interactive newspaper Kenya imagine is set to revamp its website to include among other new features daily cartoons from the cartoonist and blogger Patrick Gathara of "Gathara's world". i for one wish the editorial team at Kenya imagine great success.For sometime i tried my hand at writing for the magazine until i established this blog way back in 2006.
My only advice to the team is to watch the political content from degenerating into personality obsessions/ cults and outlets for tribal vitriols and filth.Indeed they must not go the way of MASHADA but allow for meaningful and up building content.An advantage of the Kenya Imagine website is that it allows a lot of literary talent to find expression in an international arena, budding journalists have used the website to showcase their demonstrated skill and aptitude before seeking formal employment and those otherwise gifted have also had an opportunity to express themselves unhindered!I truly appreciate such websites with domestic content that serve as an alternative to mainstream media.
On a positive note i have just been contacted by Harvard Based Mary Joyce of DigiActive to serve as their Kenyan correspondent.I am honoured in that regards!
