Ndesanjo Macha · June, 2015

I am a Tanzanian blogger, journalist, lawyer, and digital activist. I am interested in finding ways to amplify voices from non-English speaking parts of the world. Global voices, I believe, ought to be multicultural and multilingual.

I am also interested in the relationship between ICT and development in the developing world, particularly Africa.

I am the Sub-Saharan Africa Editor at Global Voices. I mostly blog in Kiswahili at Jikomboe. But you can also find me at Digital Africa.
