Period Of Shame

Yesterday, completely by chance, I saw a segment on Kenyan national television called “Period of Shame” (on Citizen TV). The full programme was about half an hour long but this is all I could find on youtube. Will try and get hold of the full programme (and the permission to link it to my blog […]
