Afrika Ignite with the support of Pamoja Trust has put together a production titled Kwe Kalyet: Lwanda Magere Revisited. This is a major adaptation of the well-known Lwanda Magere story. Using theatre to advocate for citizen engagement in building a stronger Kenya, the production explores the Luo and Nandi sides of the events.
The familiarity and power of this resonant story is exploited to uncover challenges to building a more peaceful and equitable society. This play will spark discussion on citizen action and democratic engagement. This performance has major potential in promoting the youth agency as well as raising political consciences that would contribute to a peaceful election moment in Kenya.
Besides, it is our desire to further work with the artists in this project as social entrepreneurs and public educators. We shall further seek to tour the play through Kenya. The performance shallpremiere on 8th July 2017 at the Aga Khan Hall in Kisumu
