from SA to Kwani? open mic at Yaya. Audacity of possibilities. You started
something special. You made important contributions to our writing space. You
lived your truth. Now go in peace bro. “Binyavanga

This Is Africa‏ #GoodMorningAfrica
It is with a heavy heart we learned of the passing away of Kenyan writer,
Binyavanga Wainaina, one of Africa’s leading writers who set
a pace in the literary world. He was blunt & brave, vulnerable &
insightful, charming & cheerful

So sad to hear that
Binyavanga Wainaina has died aged just 48. But in those 48
years what gifts he gave the world. Here is his biting satire “How to Write
About Africa”. Rest in power.
