Cabinet Secretary for the Ministry of Youth Affairs, the Arts and Sports Ababu Namwamba has assured Kenyans that there will be Sherehe in Vasha.
His assurance comes after a sizzling Super Special Spectator Stage on Wednesday as the world looks forward to a proper WRC Safari which kicked off on Friday around Naivasha.
Netizens had raised concern on various social media posts, as to the state of this year’s after party, since no news has been forthcoming.
Dubbed Hustla Village – the official party for the WRC – will be held at the Buffalo Mall grounds and with an exhibition and vending area where innovative youth enterprises will get a chance to display their startups and sell their products at the Hustla Bazaar.
The three-day festival will feature a mix of established and upcoming artistes in an effort promote new talent.
“Sherehe is part of the rally culture, you can’t go to Vasha without Sherehe, CS Ababu Namwaba said we are calling it Spoti, Biz na Sherehe where we are providing opportunities for our youth enterprises.”
With the world’s attention focused on Kenya as the competition takes off, Kenyan youth are staking their claim on the WRC Safari Rally. Speaking to the media during the flag off, founders of youth enterprises called upon stakeholders to stop sidelining them when opportunities for growth arise.
“Last year we funded ourselves and provided coverage for the WRC Rally, but this year through Talanta Hela we have gotten an opportunity to actually make money,” as said by Eugene Patrick the founder of Live Wire Mashariki.
“As young people, we don’t want handouts, we just want an opportunity to earn an honest living, it’s been extremely frustrating to try and get help from stakeholders but at least now there’s hope.”
On top of providing photo and video coverage for the WRC Safari Rally, Live Wire Mashariki shall set up an esport arena at the Hustla Village for fans to virtually drive the race track.
