ABOUT THE FEATURED WRITERS
Neema Ngwatilo Mawiyoo grew up singing in church in Nairobi, Kenya, but it was while at university that Ngwatilo’s relationship with music took a definitive turn. She embarked on a quest for self that took her to Johannesburg, South Africa to study the role of Kwaito music in shaping post-apartheid urban youth identity. There Ngwatilo found the stuff of poems spewing out of impassioned exchanges with friends, thick in the air at a particular Jozi reading, and alone with her on the road between Venda and Johannesburg. There was little to do but hold on.Her poetry appears on Kwani? 05( http://www.myspace.com/ngwatilo )
Muthoni Garland is the author of the novella, Tracking the Scent of My Mother, published by Storymoja among other stories.She has contributed to Kwani? 05.
Samuel Munene is a freelance writer.He has contributed to Kwani? 05.
