I started a discussion on twitter this afternoon, tagged #Icelebratekenya interesting what tweets came out of it.
I think I should be part of the Brand Kenya team. I could do it for free (I lie) but you get me, right? No, I don’t want to go to the Olympics, I don’t even like crowded places. Thanks. I digress.
Timing is everything.Given the Kenyan team’s departure to London, there is this profound patriotic spirit that is now hovering around.
Most other times, we are such a fragmented nation, torn apart by not only tribe, but also by economic disparity and a growing techonology gap, where the rate of urbanisation is leaving most of rural Kenya in the last century.
But, today, and in the next few weeks, Brand Kenya should have maximized on this grand spirit, that may not be here for another few years.
So, this afternoon, we tried to celebrate those things that make us Kenyan. Here are a few tweets.
