I had a fancy article planned…
With a lot of sumptuous words and delicate metaphors. In hopes of demonstrating to you that #NuNairobi is afire with passion, music, art, spirituality & all the mysteries of a transformational Renaissance… To encourage you to keep the faith… Support the movement… See the progress!

By uniting towards common courses –
