About Neha

I am a multimedia journalist based in Nairobi, Kenya and reporting across Sub Saharan Africa. I've worked in the United States, the Middle East and Africa. My videos and livestreams have been featured by numerous outlets, including the New York Times, Reuters News, the Thomson Reuters Foundation, the Associated Press, Now This, Storyhunter/Periscope and ELLE. I have experience producing, reporting, shooting, scripting and editing both digital and broadcast-style videos, including on-air and breaking news. I focus on stories about women, refugees, conflict and crisis, human rights, public health and business/technology.

    Police in Nairobi’s slums face serious dangers when doing their job. For some officers, the risk is too high, leading to underpolicing or overpolicing in some of the city’s most vulnerable communities. Kenya Police Chief Spokesman Charles Owino discusses policing in the slums, and touches on KPS’ response to a rise in informal security groups in these dangerous areas.
