China in African Urbanization – SACEF Business Exchange Series

Date & Time: 2pm, Saturday, July 19th, 2014
Venue: Soluxe Club Lounge, off Muhoya ave, Mbabane Rd, Nairobi

China’s visible impact on urban development in Africa is substantial. One need only to take a look at Great Wall apartments along Mombasa road, or drive down to Thika Road to catch a glimpse of some of the most impressive changes brought to Africa by Chinese constructors and developers. The contractors, developers and designers from China are having a tremendous impact on African development. Will they be able to successfully export the Chinese urban model? Can China’s own experience in fast, large-scale urbanization benefit Africa? Can the Chinese prototype developed over the past thirty years simply be exported?

Following their researches on Chinese urban development issues, Urban China magazine have collaborated with Go West Project to make an issue completely dedicated to impact of Chinese Urbanism in Africa, which will be introduced and discussed upon on Saturday 19 July, 2pm.

Speakers are Huang Zhengli, Njeri Cerere, and Juma Assiago. Huang Zhengli is a PhD candidate on Kenyan cities and informal housing and editor of Urban China. Njeri Cerere is a Planning, Development and Environmental Consultant in Kenya. Juma Assiago works at UN-Habitat and coordinates the global network on Safer Cities Program.

14:00 – 14:10 Welcome Remark by Isaac Fokuo (SACEF)
14:10 – 14:30 Opening Speech by Ambassador LIU Xianfa
14:30 – 15:00 Speech by Huang Zhengli on Chinese Urbanism in Africa

Screening: Africa Metropolis Films in Nairobi! Jul. 18-20 2014 @ Goethe Institut, the Nest & Pawa 254 Hub Respectively

Africa Metropolis

African Metropolis Films Comes To Nairobi!
African Metropolis, a compilation of six short films from six African cities, will be screened for the first time in Nairobi.

The films from Abidjan, Cairo, Dakar, Johannesburg, Lagos and Nairobi tell urban tales about life in African metropolises. Over 50 percent of the continent’s total population now lives in cities, and vital urban cultures are forming and transforming – fast, and with growing complexity. In African cinema, the shift is towards urban stories, with less focus on the traditional, rural Africa that dominated in the past.

The event will be held in different venues including Goethe Institut, The Nest and Pawa254.

The Pawa254’s rooftop will take place on Sunday, 20th of July, completing the whole event with supporting happenings like live graffiti, spoken word performances, music performances and a visual urban photography exhibition.

Entrance: Free

Nairobi Forum: Our Collective Security – Writers in Conversation, Jun. 28 2014 @ National Museum

Date: Saturday, 28 June 2014
Venue: Louis Leakey Auditorium, Nairobi National Museum
Time: 5pm – 9pm
Entry: Prior Reservation.
RSVP here

The killings in Mpeketoni on 15 and 16 June are the latest in a series of violent events that are challenging the security of Kenya and the East Africa region more broadly. The words ‘terrorism’, ‘assassinations’, ‘tribal clashes’, ‘violent crime’, ‘domestic violence’ regularly appear in mainstream and social media headlines. Traumatic pictures of the aftermath fill the newspapers and TV screens. Kenya is no stranger to violent conflict, as the 2008 post-election violence attests to, but some analysts see the current resurgence as something new. There is no shortage of views on the causes of the current insecurity. Some blame external threats, religious ideology, identity, resource competition, youth unemployment, marginalisation, political intrigue, corruption and inefficiency of the security services. Others point to a failure of collective responsibility.

In the latest in a series of conversations with well-known writers, Kwani Trust, in partnership with the Rift Valley Institute’s Nairobi Forum, have invited a panel of writers to discuss these pressing matters. The writers include:

NoViolet Bulawayo, Writer
Parselelo Kantai, Writer
Rashid Abdi, Journalist
Billy Kahora, Writer and Kwani? managing editor

This conversation follows a session at 5pm at the same venue titled, Meet the Writers, featuring the three shortlisted writers of the Etisalat Prize for Literature, Africa’s most prestigious literary prize: NoViolet Bulawayo (Zimbabwe), Yewande Omotoso (Nigeria/South Africa) and Karen Jennings (South Africa).

Fatuma’s Voice: The Media Scene in Kenya, Jun. 20 2014 @ Pawa254 Hub – Mageuzi Hall

Date: June 20, 2014
Venue: Pawa 254, Mageuzi Hall
Time: 4-8pm
Entry: sh100/-

The media has an important role in passing across information to the masses.

Recently, it has been accused of watering down its content. Our news presenters are allegedly turning out to be agents of fashion than they are casters.

Do you think that the Kenyan media has become an emblem of mediocrity than of the seriousness that it ought to be? Is press freedom a reality or does the government still control what is to be aired to the masses?
