"If you wish to move mountains tomorrow, you must start by lifting stones today." ~ African Proverb I am excited to start my role as @africans_rising's Ambassador. Heading to Gambia for my first official assignment as Africans Rising Ambassador. I will be in Tanzania in early December. Nigeria and Ghana, see you mid December. I promise to continue shining a light on suffering and injustice.
The 35-year-old will be traveling to the Gambia for his first official visit and others like Tanzania with the continent-wide movement.
In 2016, he released “Unbounded” which is a collection of engaging personal stories that recounts some of the people, places, and events that have shaped Boniface into the man that he is today. Mwangi, a university graduate shocked many by sitting for his KCSE exams last year, maintaining his reputation for being fearlessly unconventional. As one of the boldest vocal voices of political and social change in Kenya, Boniface continues to highlight government incompetence and champion the rights of the disadvantaged in society.
Last week he was shortly detained and stopped from attending the National Youth Service pass out parade in Gilgil, a ceremony which was presided over by President Uhuru Kenyatta.
