[Arab Bloggers 14] Bukeni Waruzi of Witness

During the recent Arab Bloggers Meeting (AB14) held in Amman, Jordan, which was co-organized by Global Voices, we met many interesting people providing citizen media training in the region. We spoke with a few of them to hear about their participation in the meeting and about their work helping to bring more diverse voices into the digital space.

Bukeni Waruzi is the Senior Program Manager for Africa and the Middle East at Witness, and he was on hand to take part in the Digital Storytelling Track during AB14.
