Yet as Gikandi and Wright observe above, here is a writer whose contributions to the regional traditions of East African literature is epic both in terms of output and aesthetic depth.

HatcheryA hatchery is a facility where fertilised eggs are hatched into chicks under artificial conditions. The licence is issued after an entrepreneur has constructed a hatchery as per the ‘Kenya Poultry Hatchery and Breeding Farm Inspection Protocol, 2018’, developed by the DVS in collaboration with poultry industry players.
