“Come let’s watch the World Cup finals together at Uhuru Park as we close the Nairobi Festival. Amazing fireworks show after plus Nganya awards, Christmas tree and support to 40 children homes for the festive season,” said Sakaja.

The festival began on Monday, December 12, 2022, and has seen loads of activities of the period from musical performances to movie screenings and talent shows.
