Journalist, at CCTV Africa
Since 2006 I have been working across the full spectrum of Broadcast Media in Kenya, as a journalist and presenter on radio and television.
Business news is my key area of expertise. Given the commodities boom in Africa, its' fast-growing and vibrant population, and its' slow shift to better governance and more open and democratic societies, I believe African countries are full of as-yet unexploited opportunities. By the same token however, the continent has several risks.
My job is to tell both sides of Africa's business case, to the widest possible audience, in the most timely, and engaging manner.
