Gospel sensation gives his two cents on person’s with disability holding public office

That’s how Daddy Owen started off his conversation when we stumbled upon him the other day in church.

 

As we all know, he’s a great advocator for the rights of people with disabilities and he didn’t just seat and make noise online, he actually started Malaika trust, an organization meant to celebrate the achievements of remarkable people who have overcome their disabilities and their quest to make a difference in the world.  This was way back in 2012.

Malaika trust is in turn responsible for Malaika tribute awards, awards started in 2012 to pay tribute to disabled Kenyans who are making a difference in society.

The awards are just around the corner, 3 December just to be specific and this year he intends to throw in a few spanners in the works. He will add in a different twist by first conducting a walk, dubbed Malaika disability walk from 7AM to 10 AM and he wants you to join him in championing this great course and basically give back to society. Entrance is totally free.

And he has a narrative he’s advancing, that persons with disability are normal and they shouldn’t be awarded any special treatment. If it’s vying for political seats, they should be given equal opportunity to compete and woo the citizenry in a fair playground.

According to Daddy Owen, the whole idea of nominating them doesn’t add any value for them as they have no bargaining power to actually make a change and define policy.

The Tribute awards will go down at KICC from 6PM to 10 PM in an invites only red carpet event.

It will be part of Daddy Owen live, a 3 day event where the gospel sensation intends on preaching the gospel while at the same reconnecting with his fans that he has accumulated for over a decade. Don’t be surprised when he drops a song or two in the process.
