Reactive news, giving a hard stare to the influence of al-Shabaab in Kenya

First Wednesday brings together some of the UKs finest journalists and commentators to form a panel in-the-know of today’s current affairs. Tonight the focus is on Kenya’s fight against al-Shabaab, insurgents linked to al-Qaeda, after a shopping centre was devastatingly attacked in Kenya’s capital this September. The panel tonight is made up of the BBC World Service's Africa Editor Mary Harper, independent British-Somali journalist Hamza Mohamed, sub-Saharan African journalist Jamal Osman, and Open Society Fellow and expert on Somali refugees in Kenya, Ben Rawlence. Best available seating. Latecomers may not be admitted.
