About

An Afropolitan* living in London, writing it out so that I don’t bore my friends at parties. I’m primarily interested in news and politics, particularly immigration, but I’ll also blog about poetry, theatre (perhaps one of my favourite pastimes), music, fashion and faith. I’m a member of Black Feminists and Special Projects and Development Manager at Media Diversified (Writers of Colour).

My background is in French and Chinese language studies. My dissertation for my MSc in International Political Communications, Politics and Human Rights Advocacy focused on the securitisation of the UK immigration debate. I have written for the Guardian and the Independent, and been a contributor on BBC TV and radio, Al-Jazeera and Fox News.

Madomasi = tomatoes in Shona (Zimbabwe). Find me on twitter: @madomasi

*This word has become quite contentious. For me, it’s shorthand for the Pan-African, International experiences and perspectives in my life.

    Hi Kiri, Great blog. I came across your comment on immigration on the BBC world webpage and googled you to see what you’re up to. I’ve never heard of the word “Afropolitan” until reading it here. All the best and well done for speaking up. Nomsa (Arundel 2000)

  2. Dear Kiri, we are organising a weekend in January called #UniteAgainstDividers and would really like to invite you for dinner on 13/01. We couldn’t find your email, so if you’d have time, please send us a quick reply and we send you more details. Thank you.
