Critical Commentary

This article was published by Tazama World Media, one among various emerging Kenyan-based digital publishers providing alternative sources of news. While mainstream media often focus on official/government authorities as central/primary sources of information in this COVID-19 era, alternative sources are going to those marginalized individuals and communities whose voices are typically not represented in media. 

The self-framing of Tazama World Media is also interesting. Its slogan says: 'you've seen the news now discover the story.' It suggests that the Tazama stories are deliberately seeing themselves as different from the traditional media with an ability to get the deeper truth of the story.
