The Africanist Perspective is 7!

I started the blog seven years ago as an undergraduate in New Haven ahead of the 2007 elections in Kenya. Since then the blog has grown from a few readers a week to several thousand.

Thank you all for keeping me motivated to share my thoughts on this forum.

And of course special thanks to my better half Vanessa for the many conversations and insights that have generated many a blog post.

After the seven month hiatus I am back to blogging again. Here’s to the next seven years of blogging!
