    Still on matters Capture Kenya 2015, this year we did not just come up with one calendar, but two. The images were too fantastic to be kept in a folder somewhere to be used later on. The first calendar was the main one, to be hanged on the wall next to your graduation portrait. The second calendar is a Safaricom 2016 Desktop Calendar, the kind that stands on office desks right next to the pen holder and computer.

    However, the motive is still the same; changing conversations. An invitation to look at things differently; to shift the national focus from the bad and ugly, and amplify the almost silent whispers of the good.

    Ladies and gentlemen, This Is My Kenya.
