From Rwanda To Buffalo, The Refugee Centric News Startup

Released Friday, 30th June 2017
 1 person rated this episode
Rubens Mukunzi arrived in Buffalo in 2013 after leaving Rwanda. As a journalist in a country without freedom of speech or freedom of the press, Rubens found himself at odds with the government. 

He grew up during one of the worst genocides in human history, started an education focused newsletter while still and high school and ultimately started a radio show and news publication in his home country. 

But he had to leave, and his journey led him to Buffalo, NY. Once there, his passion for journalism resurfaced and he started the Karibu News. Buffalo's only immigrant and refugee centric newspaper. Translated into five different languages, Karibu News has become the center for news in a community of residents that are often overlooked by traditional media outlets. 

Rubens sits down with us this week to talk about his journey as an immigrant, and a startup founder.
