Festive would be an under tone . Being in the Diaspora means many are detached from Immediate families and Friends . Culture and simple ideologies becomes a thing of the Past . So when an opportunity arises to engage with fellow Kenyans it always a welcome moment . Kenyans in the UK lucky to attend this years Party in the Park in London will agree with me this was no ordinary gathering it had the Magic Kenyan torch and Feel .
Reflective indeed . Memories of lost pals and relatives rekindled in an afternoon . Many could be seen enjoying meeting friends and relatives at the event . An opportunity to meet new family members and introduce partners all done with while enjoying traditional meals ,whilst enjoying the very well choreographed traditional dances and entertainment . The Faceofkenya UK team was also very active chearing and encouraging others on .Variety play schemes kept the kids busy.
Prospective Whilst the Event was graced to have the Presence of the High Commissioner H.E Lazarus Amayo amongst many Community Leaders , The Local resident Mayor for Newham Borough . The Banking industry represented by KCB . Real estate also notable Kings Pride , Aberdare Lodge and Spa , Cheriz were all so visible and agile to make that very important pitch . Kenyan bloggers and Media Amongst them UKENTV , Misterseed , the East African , The standard representative were all hunting for that very prospective engagement if not a story . The curio industry and Painting well represented . Hair and beauty industry made a presence felt New Kids in the Block Alan and Christine had a new product under the Shade symbolising organic – www.alvenur.co.uk . Sam Ochieng and Perez were also not too far from the barbeque with there Sweet potato delights and other agricultural products .Revival Church had pitched to introduce its new Tuition centre at the church in manor park.
Kenya2u is proud to have been on the ground . Branding and Consulting is what we do best and just being part of a successful brand growth ( Kenya in the Park ) it was a joy to see so many prospective and energetic Kenyans . With the help of friends we were also able to raise funds to help support a family whose mother is in need .
