19 Feb

 

“There will still be a Kenya after March 2013, voting is about choosing leaders, choose wisely” was the message at the Kenyan Asian Forum public forum held on Saturday 16th February at the Desmond Tutu Conference Centre. At the centre of it were the Goodwill Ambassadors: General (Rtd.) Daniel Opande, Zarina Patel, Adam Hussein, Amb. Ochieng Adala, John Katana and Florence Mpaayei. Participating and providing useful information on the current mobilization to keep the country moving forward in a peaceful manner was the Commissioner of the National Integration and Cohesion Commission Alice Nderitu and Assistant Director Guyo Liban Dadacha. They called on to the Asian community to realize the fact that “an organized minority can be a majority in politics” and Zarina Patel pointed out “stop being lazy, stand up and make your decision”. General (Rtd.) Daniel Opande added “before we succumb to a country like a failed state, let us talk to each and every Kenyan and convince them not to push this country into becoming another failed state.” Star columnist Pheroze Nowrojee also commented “it is a not a choice between individuals but to safeguard Kenya” and shared his collection of articles in a small book titled “A Vote for Kenya- the Elections and the Constitution”. The mission of the Kenyan Asian Forum is advancing social justice, reform, cohesion and nationhood and is composed of its founders: Zarina Patel, Jill Cottrell Ghai, Yashpal Ghai, Pheroze Nowrojee, Sudhir Vidyarthi, Zahid Rajan, Abdul Hamid Slatch, Mohinder Dhillon, Rustam Hira, Mohez Karmali, Madhukant Shah and Davinder Lamba.
