Speech by Prof. Daniel Mugendi Njiru, Phd The Vice-Chancellor, University of Embu During the Opening Ceremony of 2019 Cultural Festival on Friday, February 8th, 2019 at University of Embu at 3.00pm
The theme of this year’s CULFEST is aptly captured as: “Celebrating Talent and Promoting Cultural Diversity”. It aims at appreciating and promoting cultural ties among Kenyan communities as well as the provision of opportunities and a platform for exchange of cultural information and ideas. These are reflected through performances such as narratives, drama, comedy, poetry, music and dance among others. By tapping talent from our diverse cultures, this festival plays a great role in enhancing national cohesion and integration, which is highly emphasized in our country. It also provides an opportunity to rediscover our roots, and to remind ourselves of our tangible and intangible cultural heritage that has been in existence for generations.
