About

Peter KenworthyKenworthy News Media is written and published by sociologist / journalist, Peter Kenworthy.

I have a masters degree in International Development Studies and English and a BA (single subject course) in Journalism. I am a contributing author to “African Awakening: The emerging revolutions“. I have also worked both as a solidarity worker in Africa and for several Danish NGOs.

I have been to all the countries that I have written about, including a 4-month stint in Zambia and Zimbabwe as a solidarity worker, several project visits (and a visit to the local police station) to Swaziland, and several visits to the Saharawi refugee camps, including as part of the delegation to the 35th anniversary of the Western Saharan exile government in Tindouf, Algeria,  and Tifariti, Western Sahara.

As well as containing articles and papers written by me on various socio-political  issues, as well as on more specific issues such as the democratic movement in Swaziland or the colonisation of Western Sahara, the blog also has an array of links to other articles and material of interest in relation to issues such as development, politics, music, football and other subjects.
