Terrorism, violent extremism and counter-terrorism themes continue to take centre stage in the Kenya Music Festivals underway in Nyeri county.
Learning institutions presented choral verses with a message to Kenyans to be vigilant to fight terrorism and to be “their brother’s keepers”.
Michuki Technical Institute was first on stage with a verse titled ‘Kikulacho ki Nguoni’, that shone the spotlight on the youth who are target recruits for terror groups.
Reinforcing the message, the East Africa Institute of Certified Studies verse, ‘Choko Choko’ thrilled the audience with their humour-filled performance.
Other institutions that made presentations were Nyeri National Polytechnic with their verse titled ‘Angaza Mwanga’,Nairobi Aviation College ‘Mwewe Uthiziwe’ and Nkabune Technical Institute, Meru, with ‘Kikulacho Usalama’.
Kenya Music Festival chairman Peter Wanjohi said the themes are instrumental in creating awareness on terrorism.
On Friday, secondary schools took the stage to make their presentations even as the festivals come to an end on August 18.
