Muli wa Kyendo
Ever since he came across the theories of social change in his undergraduate studies, Muli wa Kyendo became convinced we could create positive change in the world. He founded the Syokimau Cultural Centre, a non-profit organization that encourages the use of culture and literature as a way of bringing change. A writer and journalist, his books include Whispers and The Surface Beneath (an expose’ of life of Africans in Germany). His play, The Woman of Nzaui, was performed at the National Theatre in Nairobi and other towns in Kenya to highlight the impact of traditional socialization on the modern leadership in an African society. His children’s book, Kioko and the Legend of the Plains, is a modified Kenyan folktale written to promote peace and inter-ethnic cohesion.
