Kenya: Using the Web to better a Nation

A couple of months back I ran into a site mzalendo. The word means patriot in Swahili. Not that I would know better but thats what it says on their about page ;-).
Their aim is to watch the Kenyan parliament. A noble cause with wide implications. While government of African countries try to have their dealings in closed doors, and will probably try to persecute media companies within the nation who write stories that do not favour them.

In my opinion the Media in Africa is controlled by the Government in Africa

This site is a triumph for all Kenyans at home and abroad. Holding your leaders accountable for their actions. Letting them know that YES
We are watching you

Its a new dawn in Kenya, and other African countries most follow
