Hello fellow blogers,
I feel proud as a Kenyan and as a an African journalist to be part of this new excitement where we can exchange ideas. This is it! And we will be together in this whole journey. Iam being initiated into this new world by my new found friend Ndesanjo Macha who you may have known in the blogging world.
Interestingly I am writing this from Edinburgh where I am to cover (that is not the real thing) George Bush and Tony Blair "make Poverty History". May be I am participating or covering a big lie! But you can read some of the issues that I have written since I came here. In my premier article I based it on a conversation with some of my villagemates who wanted to know what the G8 is all about. But speaking to Kenyans in Nairobi streets I found that their understanding of G8 is limited. They have also been disregarded. They are poor, but not poor enough. London and Edinburgh has been good to me. I had a chance to talk to former British secretary for International Development, Clair Short and also about the sceptics who want to Make G8 History.
