Oganga Mangiti

Biography

For me, poetry has always been a way to express myself and the emotions I feel. It has evolved over the years to include what I see in the world around me, my personal experiences, empathetic emotions through those around me and the interactions I have on a regular basis. I draw my inspiration from my everyday life, from the music I listen to, the mood of a space I walk into, to deja vu moments when everything seems to come alive through retro and intro spection.

I have been writing for the last 10 years, with active writing being mainly over the last two years. Love & Pain, my first poetry collection, is a gift from that period of my life to the world. I am currently, working and living in Nairobi, Kenya.

Like the many African writers that came before me, and who will come after me, I want to write authentic stories about Africa and its changing landscape in the contemporary world; for me, this has been achieved through poems that touch on pain, love and all the other emotions such as pain and loss being major themes in the poems I write and how I want to tell these stories.
