As Kenya's Supreme Court debates whether Uhuru Kenyatta legitimately won the election, the citizen journalists of Map Kibera follow the story with little more than their wits and a flip camera long after the international press has moved on.
Three Kenyan commissioners have resigned, citing "arbitrary decision making" by the electoral body's leadership. The electoral commission has been plagued by issues since a botched presidential election in 2017.
The resignation of several Kenyan columnists, citing concerns over increased media regulation and a 'worrying pattern' of government influence, has put the issue of press freedom back in the spotlight.
Cambridge Analytica, a British data analysis firm that is under fire for mining data from millions of Facebook users, also ran Kenyan President Uhuru Kenyatta's re-election campaign in 2017, Britain's Channel 4 reports.
The media are awash with news about Facebook’s failure to protect users' data. But this ignores the social media giant's positive aspects, writes DW’s Wanjiku Mwaura.
