Oyunga Pala

Journalist & Writer,

Independent Scholar

Amsterdam, Netherlands 🇳🇱

Oyunga Pala (he/him) is a pioneering Kenyan columnist and curator. His literary craftsmanship spans over two decades, with working experience in content curation, editing, creative-writing for print, magazines, radio, television, and film industries. Oyunga posits an investigation that remaps the African world beyond geographical boundaries. Unapologetically as a modern 20th Century African, Oyunga explores the boundaries between the extreme and the everyday deliberately ignoring stereotypes typically ladled on Africans as the ‘Other’. Oyunga departs from the epistemology offered by the single story relying solely on responsible witnessing to illustrate the insidiousness of traumatic misrepresentation. His narratives are drawn from the global African community.
