Garissa University Memorial concert

After the death of 148 people both students and security officers following the grisly attack at the Garissa University college, activists, artists, poets, friends, families, colleagues and Kenyans from all walks of life gathered at the freedom corner at Uhuru park gardens for a memorial concert.

The memorial was organised by Boniface Mwangi and friends who got overwhelming support from corporates and other well wishers.

The concerts saw perfomances by poets who recited their pieces of spoken word, singer Amos and Josh performed their song Baadaye alongside Rabbit as a tribute to the fallen.

Some of the performances brought the crowd to tears despite the fact that some of the attendees were not familiar with any of the victims but chose to stand with their families and friends.

There was a board that had 148 masks with names representing each of the victims of the attack.
