The flexibility of Kenya's media

Below are two photos of the front pages of the same Kenyan newspaper, The Standard, as published yesterday. The top is the Nairobi version of the newspaper and the bottom is the Kisumu version. The Nairobi edition discusses President Uhuru Kenyatta's dismissal of demands for greater support for the country's county governments. The Kisumu edition, on the other hand, discusses the political ambitions of Raila Odinga, Kenya's opposition leader.

Two worlds. Two Kenyas.

I thank Seth Ouma for getting the images.
