Yuri Baraza

Yuri Baraza has been blogging under his pseudonym Archer on www.mwanamishale.wordpress.com and www.archer.co.ke since 2006. An ardent social media enthusiast, he manages social media for Capital FM. Blunt and outspoken with wit, humour and occasional charm, his regular dose of 5 bob opinions keeps readers entertained on his blog and his Twitter account @ArcherMishale.

Since 2011, Archer has co-hosted Saturday Music and Sport alongside Eddy Kimani, Charles Kiarie, Maqbul, Mutwiri and currently Paul Odera. He is known to be passionate about Chelsea FC, Formula 1 (Mercedes) and claims to support AFC Leopards “by genetic default”.

Yuri enjoys Neo Soul, Jazz, Afro Fusion, intelligent conversation and a good book in his free time.

His pet peeves include keyboard ‘feminists’, activists and weaves. He claims to be a founder member of #MAWE (Men Against Weaves Everywhere). He also has a severe dislike for matatu drivers.
