Hassan Ndzovu

is originally affiliated to the Department of Philosophy and Religious Studies, Moi University, Kenya. Ndzovu has a PhD in Religious Studies from the University of Kwazulu Natal, South Africa, and his dissertation project was entitled, “Religion and Politics: A Critical Study of the Politicization of Islam in Kenya.” Between 2010 and 2011 Ndzovu embarked on a book project, Muslims in Kenyan Politics: Political Involvement, Marginalization and Minority Status, to be published by the Northwestern University Press. Currently, he is still working on this book project, which has now been accepted by the press for publication. The book project examines the political engagement of Muslims in Kenya against the backdrop of their perceived marginalization and minority status. Presently, Ndzovu is Post-Doctoral Research Fellow at the BGSMCS, Freie University Berlin, working on a research project, Mediated Sermons: Production, Women and Popular Themes of Muslim Preachers in Kenya.  This study intends to explore how Muslim women preachers in Kenya through media tools of CD/DVD have succeeded to make themselves and their sermons visible in the Muslim public sphere.
