Dr. Omanga was the only successful candidate from Africa in a global competitive process in which the Social media giant seeks to find out how the platform has embedded the complex lives of its users. Dr. Omanga will use the grant to run a project in Kayole, Umoja and Huruma Estates of Nairobi, in seeking to probe the intersections of journalistic routines, community policing and Facebook, by way of an investigation of the life-worlds and discursive practices that locate criminal gangs, digital publics and the police service in one social media space.
