Abstract

High unemployment and limits to free expression make Kenyan youth frustrated with their politicians’ undelivered promises. Their perceived exclusion from political decision-making means popular culture and social media become outlets for their voice and self-definition. Mwenda Ntarangwi writes on the artists encouraging economic independence, and what this says about exploitation and public discourse.
