At the Siri Ramgarhia Sabha Kericho battling against light drizzle that turned heavy they went on with the necessary festivities which including Morning Prayer and the change of the Sikh flag. For one year the flag post is covered with an orange cloth and dressed majestically sometimes with lights, this is a symbol that was created over three hundred years ago to let the travelers see in the sight the nearest Gurudwara or temple. Kericho has about eight Sikh families and there were some additional family members who had travelled from Nairobi to join in the celebration of Vaisakhi.
