Award Winning Kenyan Photojournalist
BONIFACE WAS THE EYE of Kenyans during the post-election violence andshowed courage and compassion to capture the images across the countrythat made newspaper headlines all over the world. To capture the moment,he had to be on the frontline where everything was going down.During the post-election skirmishes he took thousands of photos, some sogory they couldn’t be published. He covered the post-election violence ata great personal risk and sacrifice, more so given the heavy-handednessthat the Kenyan police displayed at times.His coverage of those attacks entailed great danger as, more often thannot, he had to falsify his ethnic identity. He had to show courage indocumenting the plight of ordinary Kenyans caught up in the pre and postelection violence that rocked the country and see the story through.He has worked on assignments in Sudan, Ethiopia, Uganda, China, Somalia,Tanzania, Ghana, South Africa, France and he covered the election ofPresident Barack Obama in the USA. His work has been exhibited at theFrench Cultural Centre Nairobi, Goethe Institute, the national Museums ofKenya, The Godown Art Centre and New York at the Tank Art Studio.His work has appeared in virtually all the important newspapers in theworld, from The New York Times to The Guardian, Chicago Tribune, LosAngeles Times, The international Herald Tribune, The Sunday Times, TheTelegraph, The Boston Globe and the BBC Focus on Africa magazine amongother International publications. He is the first Kenyan to be named theCNN Africa Photojournalist of the Year in 2008. In 2009 his post electionwork was highly commended in the CNN Africa Photojournalist of the YearAward. He went on to win the Award in 2010."Your photography is absolutely stunning and tells an important andpowerful story for the world to hear," said Hillary Clinton, the USSecretary of State in a 2009 letter she wrote to Boniface Mwangicommending his Post election violence work.Currently he is the project director of Picha Mtaani, a UN-fundedinitiative that focuses on reconciliation through photographicexhibitions and debate.
