Roy Gachuhi – 40 Years in Journalism
On August 27, 1977, The Standard gave me my first newspaper by-line. The newspaper distinction is important. As a high school boy, I had written for magazines since 1975. I had written for the defunct AfricaSports, Drum and Trust. But this tennis report, reproduced below in its entirety, launched my professional media career that over the next 40 years would take me around Kenya and the world. This special commemorative portfolio is a snapshot of my journey.
