Young Kenyans are writing, and they have a lot to say. As Kenyans put pen to paper or fill their various electronic devices with notes of expression, one thing stands out, with a population of 40 million, and a high literacy rate, Kenya still lags behind the big wigs like Nigeria and South Africa. So, what is Kenya doing to narrow this gap?
