Buni Media’s mission is to sustainably produce intellectually engaging, entertaining and high quality content that deeply connects with audiences. Our work is focused on four thematic areas: Promoting Freedom of Expression & open society; Fostering Participatory governance; Building an Accountable Society; and Contributing to the Creative ecosystem.
The XYZ Show
Reaching more than 10 million people with satire stimulates political awareness among Kenyans, promotes democracy and good governance, and activates citizen participation. The XYZ Show has been described as a watchdog, and has gained widespread recognition and popularity on TV, radio, on the web, on transit buses in Nairobi, and through community outreach programs.
Africa Satire Festival
The Africa Satire Festival envisions a society in which everyone can express themselves freely without suffering adverse repercussions for dissenting or alternative opinions. Through a series of events, including exhibitions of satirical work, symposia and workshops, panel discussions, live televised debate, music, and stand-up comedy/satire, the Festival aims to promote Freedom of Expression and to explore relevant and timely themes and fundamental questions affecting the global community.
Ogas at The Top
Ogas at The Top is a satirical puppet show that was developed by Buni Media and aired in Nigeria. It took an unflinching and hilarious look at Nigeria’s political elite and the other Ogas who were ruling contemporary Naija society.
Katiba (the Swahili word for ‘Constitution’) is an illustrated version of the Kenyan constitution that is transforming civic education in Kenya, by engaging citizens in a way that they have never been engaged before. An illustrated version of the Kenyan constitution that is making the Kenyan Constitution accessible for the majority of Kenyans, in an easy-to-understand graphic format.
Buni Media Workshops
Buni Media Workshops link content creators with experts, commentators and thinkers in different fields, aimed at enhancing the socio-political impact, relatability, and quality of content produced in the Kenyan media industry. We contribute to the growth of the creative sector on different levels.

From Here to Tumbuktu
From Here to Timbuktu is a children’s edutainment short film that follows the adventures of four bright and curious 11-year-olds from the four corners of the continent (Kenya, South Africa, Senegal, Egypt) as they travel back in time to 16th century Timbuktu, and find themselves smack in the middle of the Saadian (Moroccan) Invasion of 1593. This short film brings a slice of ancient African history to life.
