I heard about the state burial protest via social networks and I thought this is a protest worth my time. The protest was set for 10:00am, but I got there around 10:40am because of traffic from Valley road all the way to GPO.
When I got there, I found a crowd of around 70 people and loads of media guys, both local and international
I loved the banners and the message on the t-shirts, straight to the point. Sadly I did not get to score myself a tee 😦
After a few minutes of waiting, the caskets came!! a large group of youth were carrying close to 70 black caskets, with the message ballot revolution on them
We sang and danced, as we waited for more caskets to come (I did very little dancing, but took loads of pictures)
This is Boniface Mwangi, the guy behind the protest
I left before the 2nd round of caskets came through and the walk to parliament because of time.Though, I am happy I participated
As an entrepreneur in this country, this is how I think poor leadership=bad economy/poor performing shilling and this =to potential investors/tourists keeping away from our country=to me eventually closing my business because of zero/little profits.
Vote wisely& peacefully come March 4 th 2013
