Beyond the Blue Band Generation

I won­der if this has ever been shared on the Ken­y­an blo­gos­phe­re so far? I actual­ly don’t like pos­ting vide­os / not my own stuff, but the fol­lowing is an inte­res­ting video that caught my atten­ti­on while brow­sing Vimeo for qua­li­ty con­tent ex EAK.

Bey­ond the Naku­matt Generation

“Addres­sing the con­cerns of the poo­rest house­holds and faci­li­ta­ting the inclu­si­on of small­hol­ders in modern dis­tri­bu­ti­on chains should be a prio­ri­ty in all East Afri­can countries.”
(“Bey­ond the Naku­matt Genera­ti­on: Dis­tri­bu­ti­on Ser­vices in East Afri­ca”, World Bank Poli­cy Note No. 26, Oct 2011)

Tal­king about vide­os from Kenya, here is ano­t­her — total­ly unre­la­ted — one about a revol­ting teenager:

Do It Yourself, The Art Of Being Punk

Oh, and the art of brow­sing Vimeo & Co. for ori­gi­nal Ken­y­an con­tent is to exclu­de tho­se vids pro­du­ced by reli­gious Wazun­gu Church­es with their “Com­ing to Afri­ca and doing good”-approa­ches that eit­her show some slum dwel­lers or other poor groups in rural are­as. It’s also the rea­son why I like this last video: even though it shows a house­hold and pro­tec­ted child­hood that pro­bab­ly only a small per­cen­ta­ge of Ken­yans have enjoy­ed, it’s the other side of Kenya that I have in mind when I talk about Kenya.
