  • Talk Africa: Africa Writers Special

    The literary scene in Kenya is growing and at a relatively fast rate, gone are the days when Ngugi wa Thiongo was the only benchmark for young writers. Young Kenyans are writing, and they have a lot to say. As Kenyans put pen to paper or fill their various electronic devices with notes of expression, one thing stands out, with a population of 40 million, and a high literacy rate, Kenya still lags behind the big wigs like Nigeria and South Africa. So, what is Kenya doing to narrow this gap? David Mailu a renowned Kenya writer and Ng`ang`a Mbugwa the Ngugi wa Thiong`o literary winner, 2012, talks to us about writing for the African audience and drives us through the different generation of writers that the world have come to know and love.
