Tony Mochama

Its been a good few months for Tony Mochama. The Nairobi based journalist and poet in the last few months came third in the Burt Prize for his book Meet the Omtitas where he went home with some nice pocket change. He was also more recently a Miles Moreland Award recepient where he is writing a new book on Kenya now as seen from the future.

Just as you thought that was all there was from this gentleman, there is even more. He will be launching his latest title Nairobi, a Night Runner’s Guide through the City in the Sun. The book is stated to give a guide to Nairobi for the person who wants to see the capital city by night.

The book is published Native Intelligence (who also recently unveiled Invisible by Kevin Mwachiro) and will be launched at the Arfa Lounge, Imax (20th Century Cinema) on Wednesday March 5th . The event will cost you Kshs500 and this entitles you to a book and a movie. This cannot be considered a bad deal if you ask me. See y’all there on Wednesday no?
