Giving voice to the slums of Kenya

Amandla’s Gwen Schulman interviews Wairimu Gitau of Mathare Radio and Owen Sheppard of the Liberation Cooperative Organisation of Kenya. Both organizations are committed to promoting independent media in Mathare, Kenya’s second largest slum and giving voice to the residents. They describe their efforts to stay rooted in the community, gain international solidarity and find support without losing sight of the needs of the community.

Amandla will broadcast some of their media pieces over the next few weeks.
