A description on the official Luo Festival page, describes the event as: “An annual event aimed at celebrating the Luo culture, a culture of class, trendsetters and the learned."

The 2021 Luo Festival went down at the Ngong Racecourse and was graced by Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) party leader Raila Odinga among other prominent figures.

In a short clip shared by some of the revelers, the celebrations were halted to allow the Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) party leader a chance to speak to the people.

Mr Odinga took to the stage and greeted the crowd in Dholuo.

He was accompanied by some ODM politicians, including Nairobi Woman Representative Esther Passaris.
