So no one told you life was gonna be this way. Your job's a joke, you are broke, your love life's D.O.A. It's like you're always stuck in second gear, when it hasn't been your day, your week, your month, or even your year.
On the fourth episode of Omenerds podcast, we try figure out our personal interpretations of the “Kenyan Dream” or if it is in fact an actual Kenyan nightmare from which there is no waking up. We were also joined by Mugambi Nthiga, an award wining Kenyan actor, director, writer and Sallinder Nyawira from Rescue BnB, a community seeking to map, match and connect those in need of help with those willing to volunteer, provide sustenance and support following Kenya’s August & October 2017 Elections. It was “created” on 2 am on Saturday, 12th August when Sallinder Nyawira tweeted an offer to house anyone who was in need of a place to stay due to security concerns, to contact her. Over 24 hours, it grew and now has a core team of 10 personnel managing various administrative functions, as well as 100’s of volunteers in Kibra, Kawangware, Dandora, Mathare, Siaya, Kisumu and online.
