Ujuaji – Muthoni Ndonga

OneBeat Accelerator recipient Muthoni Ndonga began ‘Ujuaji’, a video podcast focusing on learning and unlearning concepts affecting youth today, specifically around capitalism, labor, and economic power. Muthoni Ndonga hosted the podcast and was joined by Mookh Africa co-founder Eric Thimba and Porgie, also a partner of Mookh Africa, which is a leading company in the event space in East Africa. “We are here because we are deeply motivated to know, to share, to acquire knowledge, and more importantly to do better, now that we know there’s better”, Muthoni introduces in the podcast. The conversations include their personal perspectives as young leaders and entrepreneurs in the country.

The grant funded the creation of 4 episodes freely available on Youtube, inviting listeners to engage with the conversations in shaping what labor systems in Kenya can look like in the future. Listeners have engaged in the form of comments, appreciating the conversation as well as challenging the concepts brought up and attempting to imagine, alongside the hosts, alternative ways to shape a more equitable economic future. The podcast is produced by Carol Kioko, with Henry Wamai as the videographer and a music track contribution from Leon Omondi.
