Nish Matenjwa · April, 2006

I am a Kenyan mshairi (poet in Kiswahili) living in the UK dreaming of a time when the cultural, legal and political obstacles that prevent African women attaining economic independence and equality are eradicated. I would like to see the development of gender-sensitive ICT policies leading to more African women accessing and using these technologies.

I am also interested in arts and culture.

I blog about these issues and more at mshairi.

I am an administrator of the Kenyan Blogs Webring KBW.
