AO. discursive risk - Coban.

AO: Coban has a strong analysis of the meta discourses, especially focusing on how “Made in Africa, for Africa” narratives have characterized the tech space in Nairobi. She is missing a strong macro analysis and without historicizing “hacking” (by another name), falls into the same discourse touted by the sector (that “Engine” was the start of hardware hacking in Kenya; this is not true and fails to account for the public universities, e.g. Technical University of Kenya).
