Service Description

What makes my services stand out is the fact that I am a professional journalist first, then a freelancer second.

Many would say that a journalist is Jack of all trades so its true that I can write about everything touching on human life. However my absolute focus is on pieces that are based on real life experiences, that are thought provoking and that eventually lead to policy changes in the right places.


My areas of expertise include but not limited to;-

-World news
-Current affairs
-Politics/elections
-Human interest features which focus on
a)Women rights and equality
b)The girl child's early year struggles in African settings.
c) Harmful cultural practices like forced/early marriages & FGM
-Travel/food/culture
-Research
-Translation; English - Swahili.
