Our story

Gemini Spice Magazine is built on an idea.  

Idea is an acronym for Inclusion, Diversity, Equality and Acceptance, you get?

Someone once said, “You cannot kill ideas.” True to that. They killed Thomas Sankara but his ideologies are still alive. Heck they are part of the ideology Gemini Spice is created.  

In the war of weapons, guns are the most powerful but in this war of intellectual power, words and ideologies are the most powerful. 

You’ve heard the old adage, The pen is mightier than the sword?

That’s what we believe.  And that’s why we write. 

On the other hand, we are just a bunch of young people learning to crawl in this world and writing down our journeys as we do so. 

From a little wordpress blog started in 2015 to a Kenyan Literary Magazine in 2020, impossible is yet to be understood here. 

Message From Founder

.My name is Wambui Ochieng’.

I am a feminist writer, poet and activist.

In my soul lies the bed of feminism, and my heart beats for poetry. 

Writing is everything to me. Writing has gotten me through hell and its the only thing that gives and does not take. 

Ever since I was a young girl, I craved to be great, to be influential and to inspire change in the world. 

I like moving with many people in whatever I do because in this world, if you want to go fast, you go alone but if you want to go far, you go with people. 

My aim is to create an inclusive, diverse, equal and accepting commune here at Gemini Spice Magazine and with time, extend that to the rest of the world. 

If you share in this dream, then join me in this great venture in creating a glorious history. 

The dream is to get a monument.

Artists and Activists change the world.
