Kenya Balancing Act: Human Rights, Civil Society, Neo-Colonialism, and Democracy

What are we to make of Uhuru Kenyatta's (and his fellow International Criminal Court (ICC) indictee, William Ruto's) recent election to the highest offices in Kenya? Many in the West consider the two to be warlords in suits, whose ignorant tribesmen followers would have voted for them if their fingernails were dripping blood. When I commented to a human rights activist that Kenyatta was fairly elected, he just said, wearily, "Hitler was elected too."

MSF Names Two Spanish Abductees, Crucial Medical Activities Stopped

One of the MSF drivers, Mohamed Hassan Borle, 31, was injured during this attack. His medical condition is stable, he is out of danger and remains hospitalised. Two international staff, both Spanish, were taken. As yet, MSF has not been able to establish contact with the two staff taken. A crisis team has been set up to deal with this incident.

My Life With HIV: A Photographic Project

Charles Sako, Catherine Atieno and Siama Musine live and work in Kibera, a deprived area of Kenya’s capital Nairobi. They are also all HIV positive and receive treatment through Medecins Sans Frontieres/Doctors Without Borders' clinic in Kibera.

Six years ago, they were given disposable cameras for a week to document their lives on HIV treatment. From those photos, MSF created a project called ‘My Life with HIV’.

Using online media can boost exposure in traditional media

When I talk to scientists and activists, I often encourage them to think about new media (the internet, social media such as Facebook and Twitter) as well as the traditional media (newspapers, radio, etc) as a means of getting their message out. Though people do get excited, they question the reach of such media, in countries where internet access is very slow, or not widespread.
