The Inaugural BAKE Bloggers Awards

The first ever Kenyan bloggers awards went down on Saturday 5th May at the Serena Hotel in Nairobi. Larry *pause* Madowo was the MC, and among the attendees were Paul Kukubo the CEO of Kenya ICT Board, Nzioka of Safaricom ( I forget his title ;-) ), the head of Red Cross Kenya and many other awesome people including yours truly!
