What Tusker Twende Kazi is all about
#TwendeKazi is all about rallying Kenyans to show the resilience and spirit of togetherness that makes the country great in a relay kind of race to deliver a Tusker to Humphrey Kayange who is in London and misses home.
This journey is meant to demonstrate the resilience of the Kenyan spirit to achieve whatever it sets out to do; it is a nation-building mission. It is further aimed at bringing East Africans together and igniting the belief that we can do anything, demonstrating that together, we can make a little bit of Kenya go a long way.
Through a 50-day journey to 8 countries, 25 teams of two will take the long and sometimes tough journey through obstacles to find a way to get to London. They have only their strength and charm to get by – no money in their wallets, and must rely on goodwill from strangers. Each team has a time limit to get the Tusker bottle to the next team in the relay; no delays! They do this not to win any race or money, but to show what a great country and people we are.
The show will air every Sunday from 8pm on Citizen tv.
