December 18, 2008

Never underestimate the influence of dedicated family. Take Joseph Odindo, National Media Group’s Managing Editor, and his small town background.

Born in a small village in North West Ugenya in Kenya, Joseph Odindo was brought up to revere education and the power of knowledge. As a young boy, his father impressed upon him the important his studies and encouraged him to pursue his interests in journalism.

With the support of his family, Joseph Odindo did just that. Currently, Mr. Odindo is considered a primary influence in the NMG and manages the the largest stable of newspaper in East and Central Africa.
