Cartoon Exhibition: Hii Chapta by Renowned Kenyan Cartoonists, Until Aug. 31 2016 @ Alliance Française
Kenyan cartoonists, theatre practitioners, performance poets and musicians team up to awaken you and I to Hii Chapta 6 of the Constitution of Kenya.
It is an invitation to the public and the public servants to reflect on the principles enshrined in Chapter 6 on Leadership and Integrity and take stock of its implementation and the conduct of the public officers to date.
Hii Chapta provides that power exercised by leaders is a public trust that is to be exercised to serve the people. Officers are required to demonstrate respect for the people of Kenya, make decisions objectively and impartially, refuse to be influenced by favouritism or corruption, serve selflessly and be accountable for their actions.
Kenyan cartoonists Celesté, Gathara, Gammz, Kham, VicNdula, Gado, Maddo, Stano and Casso interrogate Hii Chapta through cartoons that captured good governance, leadership and integrity (mostly lack of it).
Until: July 31, 2016
