Born, bred, schooled and resident in Nairobi. I'm going by one name because the government has on several occasions prevailed upon some journalists and comedians to cease and desist from satirizing the government and its officers, something I do heavilly on occasion in my blog Thinker's Room (http://thinkersroom.com/blog)

I'm here because the local press is wont to lean on the side of sensationalism and a lot of what is actually happening on the ground slips through the cracks
