About Me: 

Shaidi means witness in swahili....I call my journal that because its where I plan to "testify" and bring out all issues affecting women around me. As a woman I have seen what war, bad governance, bad decisions, culture can do to a woman. I may not have had first hand experience but i have had first hand accounts and seen with my own eyes.

Indeed it is time for women to rise up and raise their voices. In my culture a womans voice is a powerful tool...her loud wail is used to announce death and her shout to announce good tidings! It is time for this voice to be heard across all borders....in Congo, Darfur, Somalia, Kenya , Ethipia, Uganda, Cambodia, Rio de Janeiro, China, India, USA you name it.

I am a journalist who is passionate about issues affecting women ...because everything affect women and yet very few are involved in providing solutions. I hope through this I can raise a womans voice and help make a positive change .
