Who wouldn’t want to see Omieri?

The show stopper was the Omieri shed. It kept on attracting curious onlookers days on end. With long winding queues spanning the whole breadth of Jomo Kenyatta Sportsground, the venue for the celebration. Children, adult, all wanted to catch a glimpse of this snake 🐍 that suffered an untimely death ordeal 31 years ago.

Amina Mohamed the CS Education, Culture, Arts and Sports graced the occasion and couldn’t wait to mis a glimpse of Omieri.

Anyways, Kisumu people didn’t disappoint. They came in their large numbers, filling the whole ground throughout the celebration to taste a piece of Kenya represented from it’s diverse tribes, cultures and heritages.

The ground was full of celebrants

Above all, Kisumu people were very welcoming as always, interacted, and showed love to everyone, more so the guests.

It was a busy three days. The town center was literally full of people.

There were no reported cases of violence or misbehavior. The security teams played their duties well keeping everyone and visitors safe and secure.

Various government agencies, institutions and corporate partners (Tuskys were sponsors) took part in this cultural celebration.

Government officials, and elected leaders alike didn’t miss out too.

We would like to commend the County Government of Kisumu for hosting this, and bringing the world to Kisumu. This is a testament enough that Kisumu is ready for business.

We still urge you to visit Kisumu and have a taste of it. Enjoy the fish, enjoy the sunset (one of a kind!), and feel the love 😍.

Kisumu is welcoming, Kisumu is Amazing.
