BBC World Questions Nairobi, Nov. 7 2017 @ the University of Nairobi

Date: November 7, 2017
Venue: Manu Chandaria Auditorium – at the University of Nairobi
Entrance: Prior Registration – (Registration link)

The BBC World Service is holding a series of debates across the world in a time of change. BBC World Questions – an international series of English language events created with the British Council – allows the public to question their politicians, leaders and opinion formers directly face to face. The debates are led entirely by questions from the audience who are able to have their points heard around the world.

On November 7th, BBC World Questions comes to the University of Nairobi to host a debate on the future of Kenya. Kenya has the largest economy in Central and Eastern Africa. It’s a world-leader in the production of black tea and the export of flowers, its extraordinary wildlife draws in visitors from across the globe, and its long distance runners are way ahead of the international competition. Kenya is a proud democracy with a liberal economy, but the country is in deep crisis. Amidst accusations of electoral fraud and counter accusations of a ‘judicial coup’, the Presidential Election of August 8th was declared void by Kenya’s Supreme Court and a re-run was ordered. The situation has still not resolved.

Who can govern Kenya? How should a government tackle endemic issues like corruption, youth unemployment and security? What can be done to end the disturbances on the street and bring Kenyans together in acceptance of a legitimate government?

The BBC’s Jonathan Dimbleby will be joined by a panel of leading politicians and thinkers in a debate lead entirely by questions from a public audience that will be heard around the world. The panelists will be confirmed soon.

The programme will be recorded on 7th November at the University of Nairobi at 6 pm.

To join in the debate and be part of the audience please apply for FREE tickets, here
