Google has honoured Kenya’s Mashujaa Day with a special doodle drawn by a Kenyan girl.
The doodle was drawn by Esther Wambui Githinji of Shree Cutch Leva Patel Samaj School, who beat over 4,300 others to win this year’s Doodle 4 Google competition, receiving Ksh 800,000 school fee scholarship and another Ksh 800,000 technology grant to her school.
The doodle competition themed ‘My Kenya.’ was in line with Kenya’s Jubilee year celebrations. Githinji’s doodle shows Kenyan athlete heroes, the national flag and the KICC.
Mashujaa Day collectively honors all Kenyan heroes, those who contributed towards the struggle for Kenya’s independence and those alive doing Kenya proud, like the athletes she sketched.
