Introducing…Amil Shivji

Tired of everyone – including some rather awkward choices – attempting to rebrand, write about, speak for Africa(ns)? If so, here’s an antidote:

Word on the street: is an independent project started by Amil Shivji that puts the spotlight on Tanzanian citizens and their opinions on everyday issues. It is a weekly series that offers us an insight into what the common Tanzanian citizen has to say.

On this (the second) episode, Demere Kitunga, a publisher at Soma Book Cafe talks about what 50 years of independence means to her and where Tanzania is now.

You can suscribe to the series here.

Amil Shivji is a Film Production graduate from York University, Toronto, who, as part of his final year there co-wrote and directed the short film “Who Killed Me” about “life of a lower class Congolese immigrant in Toronto before, during and after he is shot and murdered outside his workplace”.
The complete film can be watched entirely on Buni.tv – here.
