    Oliver Mathenge is the Digital Editor at Radio Africa Group in Nairobi, Kenya.

    He boasts of a 14-year career in communications - 10 of which he spent in active political and current affairs journalism.

    He has also been involved in corporate branding, communication, and marketing with proven results in the education and behaviour change communication sectors.

    Mathenge is a blogger, poet and creative writer.

    He will be joining NMG in December. This comes after the media house Digital Sub-Editor Mac Otani quit to concentrate on his own media outlet.

    In an exclusive interview with Kenyans.co.ke on Tuesday, June 22, 2021, Otani disclosed that he resigned from NMG to pursue his other interests.

    He further disclosed that he was inspired to start Swala Nyeti after being synonymously associated with the term from everyday interactions for over a decade.

    "I resigned. I want to try other things outside media like consultancy, influencing and run my own site. Swala Nyeti is one of the things I left to start.

    This latest project adds to Otani's impressive career spent around several media houses in Kenya spanning over a decade.
