Samosa Community Cricket Tournament, Sep 23 2012 @ Karura Forest

5 Over Community Cricket Tournament
with Murfy’s Flaw, Entertainment & Vendor Market | All Day
@ Karura Forest | OPEN TO PUBLIC

For centuries, sports fields around the world have been bringing together players from different races, genders, ages and classes.  Sporting events are participatory and SAMOSA uses sports as a powerful tool to bring about inclusiveness, confidence, leadership and cooperation.

Sporting activities have also brought individuals and communities together and have helped to bridge ethnic and cultural divides, promote social integration and foster tolerance.  Sporting competitions have also helped to reduce tension and generate dialogue in some instances.

Sport teaches the value of effort and how to manage victory, as well as defeat.  When the convening powers of sports are emphasized, sport becomes a powerful vehicle through which the SAMOSA message can be actualized.

The SAMOSA 2012 Sports program will focus on bringing people of all backgrounds together on the playing field to celebrate one of society’s most important activity – Play!

Rock n’BBQ with Murfy’s Flaw
Five time Battle of the Bands winners Murfy’s Flaw makes its debut in the wider community at SAMOSA in 2012.  A mostly all girl band,  Murfy’s Flaw are Reema, Punky Monkey, Jojo, Jozie, Njeri and the band’s only male member – the indomitable Number Nine.

Nairobi’s most famous and popular alternative rock band will thrill SAMOSA fans and the audience in the evening, as they relax and wind down after a day of enlivening sporting activities.
