Hustling day in Silicon Savannah

Top

'Silicon Valley rocks!' says one of the characters of our story. Well, not for everybody.

With over 56 fintech firms and around eight digital taxi platforms, Kenya’s digital ecosystem is breeding local entrepreneurs and luring foreign investors. Yet, the hype conceals a more nuanced picture. Some people have found a way to use digital technologies to their advantage; others feel betrayed by digital platforms that promised them better pay and more freedom.

Check out the comic below to find out more.

The story is by Gianluca Iazzolino and Michael Kimani and the artwork by Maddo. This cartoon is made in partnership with  the Firoz Lalji Institute for Africa, LSE, and has been funded by the UK Research and Innovation (UKRI) Global Challenges Research Fund, grant DIDA EP/T030127/1. You can download the comic as a PDF here.
