Ask Jubilee Party What Inclusion Looks Like

H.E Uhuru Kenyatta Together With Deputy President William Ruto during the official launch of the Jubilee Party

On Saturday,the President of Kenya officially launched the Jubilee Party.In his inspiring speech,the president explained the choice of name.That during the Biblical times,”jubilee” was a celebration of freedom,reconciliation and renewal,urging us to unite.He also mentioned that the party was interested and fully committed  to serving those who are disabled and those that are not among other issues alluding to the commitment of serving diversity irregardless of individual predispositions.
And just like Anastasia Somoza spoke during the DNC in Philadelphia on behalf of marginalized people,On the second day Wanja Maina ,a young politician woman  with a disability spoke on the achievements of the ruling party and what could be done in the future to make democracy more inclusive.Away from the speeches,there was sign language interpretation,and also reserved sitting spaces for people with a disability.Different political leaders expressed commitment to support the rights of all including the disabled.
Below are some of the images of the PWDs at the launch:
