MO FAYA "They call it a slum we call it home."

"Mo Faya" is a Kenyan musical written and directed by reknown musician Eric Wainaina.It is set in "Kwa maji" meaning "in the water".The story depicts the life in the slums and aims to show how people in the slum are taken advantage of especially by the politicians.The story has also  inco-oporated the aspect of violence that took place after the 2007 elections making it a must watch for everyone.

The Kibera Film School trainees got a chance to attend the show at the Godown art center courtesy of the Netherlands embassy.
The event was organized to honour Marije Balt who has finished her term as the Netherlands' ambassador to Kenya and was going ahead to work at the Hague for her country.
Present were people Marije has worked with in her long stay in Kenya and this included a lot of artists and youth groups. 
Marijie Balt was full of praise for the movie TOGETHERNESS SUPREME and assured her audience that they should expect a movie with a difference.
Present were also the some of the cast from TOGETHERNESS SUPREME.
