Muki’s Hiphop political agenda 2012

This video was shot,edited by our very own David Muchina aka (Lethal Dynamic-Channel O’  2008 MCee Africa runner up) whose versatility makes us proud of giving the youth a chance.

In the recent Words and Pictures (WAPI) dubbed The return of Muki Garang an event  held on 2nd  July 2011 at the Sarakasi Dome in Ngara, out very own Muki Garang was invited by Sarakasi Trust to commemorate 6 years of the program since he created it together with the British council.

Not only did Muki impart the importance of political awareness but he also set the pace to consolidate Kenyan youth to build a political constituency.

In Kenya the youth have little, if any, economic power which in turn makes their participation process in National development negligible. To win the war against negative ethnicity and reverse the adverse effects on the Kenyan people, an elaborate youth program using civic education will boost awareness around the issue across the country.

Using popular culture as a tool enables us to build the capacity in young people to make informed decisions. By tapping into dance and music, communicating important subject matter becomes easy due to the interest and the passion youth draw from them.

Our members Jemedari Muziki and Mandela 3rd Eye (Malawi)  graced the occassion  as well. We thank you for coming to experience with us the auspicious moment .
