Mwasafari was started in 2011 as ‘Mwas The Poet’, and was initially published on Kenyanstar website and magazine as ‘Pitch Poet’, a weekly column. For years, it has remained as the only sports poetry blog in Kenya but has grown and diversified into more than just that. Mwasafari is now considered more of a lifestyle blog.
‘‘Football is also called poetry in motion but some fans take this literally. You have to look no further than the cheesy poems about football from Mwas. The poems sometimes have rhymes but sometimes they are just easy reading and worth a smile.” – Reviewed by Ingwe Fan Magazine Issue 3 (September 2012)
Mwas is ‘Musing, Word And Sport’.
Mwas are ‘My Words And Sounds’.
Mwasafari ni safari yangu, safari yetu.
