Nairobi Students Making Peace

In the message below, Senior Producer Paul Mbatia describes Brother Time’s continued use as a peacemaking tool on University of Nairobi’s campus and beyond:

I should also inform you that late last year, there was a student activity on campus and Brother Time was screened and watched by very many students who really appreciated. For sure, we shall work to get it screened before the general elections.

In addition, I am in a group of colleagues that has written a proposal on Wajibu Wetu ( Our Patriotic Duty as University in Making Peace During the Elections). We are fund-raising to implement the project in the remaining days before the elections. The project has been given a nod by the UON and the Relevant Government Ministries. If we get the funds, we intend to train about 1,500 students and send them to the 47 counties where they will work as Agents of Peace during the elections. Brother Time has featured prominently in the proposal. During the training, Brother Time will be used as one of the ‘teaching aid’ and will encourage the ‘Peace Makers” to screen it countrywide. Our first activity is to have a breakfast meeting with all the Vice Chancellors of the 40 Universities we have in Kenya. During the breakfast meeting, we shall try and screen Brother Time. Certainly, I will need to produce many more copies. In essence, Brother Time will be fully utilized … perhaps beyond our initial expectations???

God will always open opportunities for people with good intentions to help make the world a better place for humanity.

Happy New Year!!!

Paul Mbatia
