Participating artists include: Anthony Okello, Peterson Kamwathi, Thom Ogonga, John Kamicha, Maral Bolouri and Ndeithi Kariuki.

The event is free and open to the public on Thursday, July 9th, 2015 at Kuona Trust in Nairobi, Kenya.

    I guess Kenya has started leasing its army to devil.  The devil will always abandon you when you are down, and might even charge you at ICC for crimes against the humanity. Never trust the devil, even if he comes to you looking like you (obama).

    As mentioned in this article, the Kenyan cross-border intervention will be successful only if there is a unified approach in dealing with the question of Al-Shabab. i think that Mr Ahmed’s opposition to the invasion of Kenyan boots on the Somali soil sends a clear message to the people of Joma Kenyatta.we denounce all forms of terror whether from Shabab or from a civilian casualties caused by the collateral damage of the cross-fire. we have lost countless lives during the last decade and over and we dont need any more casualties. the Shabab are Somalia and we are at war with them and we will prevail them soon. please Kenya remember that we are more than neighbours, Somalia make up % of Kenyan republic and we have many influences in your lives than the foreigners.

    regardless of the embattled president of somalia the so called shiekh sharef says, Kenya should continue on its support to the people of somalia. History will mention on positive notes and the poputlation of the Jubba and Gedo regions will remain thank full to the people to Kenya. This president is himself ashabab and does not speak for us.

  • This Somali president is sounding so ‘kigeugeu’ neither here or there one wonders if he can be trusted. Since he is unable to secure his country, I suggest he should shut up and let the Kenya Army do its job of eradicating al shabaab.
