Hello,

I would like to propose a meetup during the coming weekend which is on
4th of February.

If the date is ok with you or otherwise, kindly put it on this list so
that we have the meetup the soonest possible.

AFAIK, Wikis Takes Nairobi had been postponed to a later unknown date.
However, I had a suggestion of how we can do it having borrowed a leaf
from India who recently did a Wikipedia Takes Mumbai. We meet at a
central location in Nairobi, split into groups, then go taking photos
of different targets around the city then later on converge at a
central place where the uploads shall be done.

I will be setting up an etherpad later on today and share the link here.


Regards,
Stephen
