#AfroPolitico – Kenya’s Freshest Political Banter Show
If you have not been hiding in your underground bunker in the wake of an impending nuclear standoff between North Korea (or Bad Korea as South Korea would call them) and the United States, then you are no stranger to the plethora of political intrigues that have shook the corners of this country over the last 2 months.
A lot has gone down with regard to Kenya’s recent elections which was rife with reports of it being marred in controversy in the days leading to it. The results were heavily contested and in the end it was up to the supreme court to defend the merit of the results which declared the incumbent, Uhuru Kenyatta as the president elect.
With all the different news stories and angles around this latest political drama that has visited Kenya, it can be a little overwhelming attempting to follow the story especially now that it has also been weaved into a convoluted legal realm. Unpacking the key issues inside all the information around the recent elections can be a tall order but you don’t have to worry about missing any important details. What’s Good Networks has you covered with its new political talk show, Afro Politico with hosts James Smart – popular political news commentator and Marvin Tumbo – respected political strategist.
It’s pretty simple, two smart guys with an unhealthy appetite for Afro-Politics and unmatched knowledge of International politics are put together in a popular bar with two mics and two beers.
These guys would be enemies if they were actual politicians but instead – they are political pals because they don’t know who else to turn to with their constant brain surges of why the world works the way it does and what that means for Africa.
The candid conversations are complimented by the casual ambiance of the set location which is a refreshing departure from boring news studios and adds a healthy dose of life to the show. AfroPolitico aims to encourage and inspire politically conscious conversations despite party affiliations or tribal leanings. It invites the viewer to understand current affairs through the arguments of the show hosts and the fact that there is beer in the mix makes for some good entertainment as well. Here are some of the comments from previous shows.
What time can you watch #AfroPolitico you ask? The show airs twice weekly every Thursday and Sunday at 8 pm local time on What’s Good Networks Facebook page.
