Kenya28Feb: Sing, unite, and DISPERSE
(Not in any way associated with Bunge La Mwananchi or Article 43 march)
Today, the 28th of February 2011, Kenyans will stop what they are doing, wherever they are and sing the national anthem in unison at 1pm. The idea behind Kenya28Feb is to unite Kenyans in one action and provoke reflection about personal responsibility for fostering unity and peace.
We can only change Kenya if we support unity at a personal level, unity is a personal responsibility.
To this end we wish to reiterate that
- Kenya28Feb is NOT a political event or protest!
- Kenya28Feb is NOT a political rally
- Kenya28Feb is ONLY about unifying Kenyans by singing the national anthem: there will be no speeches, before or after, nor any other related activities on this day.
- Kenya28Feb urges participants to congregate peacefully, sing the national anthem, and then disperse and carry on with their day.
As such, we hereby dissociate Kenya28Feb from any attempts to turn Kenya28Feb into a political rally; we disassociate Kenya28Feb from any attempts to turn Kenya28Feb into a political march.
As clearly stated in all promotional material, we urge all participants to remain true to the aims of this initiative: to congregate peacefully, sing the national anthem, and then disperse peacefully and carry on with their day.
Ni Wakati! We Are Kenya!
