The Conversation: new on Tutawaza 1

Here on Tutawaza, we thought we’d add  a little something to the site. In addition to our regular blogs where our team reflect on initiatives in global development, we’ll be bringing you shorter pieces on what’s in the news, and behind the headlines. Serious, humorous and sometimes just stories that grabbed our attention and that we’d like to share here.

We’d like to know what you’re interested in too. So, please do tweet us @tutawaza, find us on Facebook at Tutawaza or meal tutawaza@gmail.com.

So, first up is a television series that could be worth a watch. In the West, television mockumentaries have become increasingly popular. Now, Kenya has got its first one. Like Ricky Gervais’s groundbreaking series, it is based in an office.

Here though it’s called  ‘The Samaritans’, and for those of us involved in international development, the joke may be on us.  There are clips available on its website .  Hopefully, the full episodes will be available soon. The clip showing the team working to create a new acronym to help them get a funding grant looked promising.
