Hustling day in Silicon Savannah

Trailer: Hustling day in Silicon Savannah

This Wednesday we'll publish our latest comics journalism project, which is another collaboration with the London School of Economic and Political Science. 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.

The story is by Gianluca Iazzolino and Michael Kimani and the artwork by Maddo. Check out the trailer we've made for the project here below and be sure to read the comic on Wednesday!
