Mr. and Miss Kibera 2016 contest
The Commission in partnership with Amani Kibera and other partners organised for Mr. and Miss Kibera 2016 Contest, which was held on 12th November 2016 at the Kibera Kamukunji grounds. The beauty pageant is an annual event that provides for a safe and interactive environment for community leadership development and cultural exhibition in Kibera informal settlement. Themed “Beauty for better leadership and peace’’, the contest brought together participants from various ethnic groups who presented on selected cultural themes, culminating into the eventual crowning of the 2016 Mr. and Miss Kibra.
The contest is an annual initiative that uses the power of beauty to mobilise the Kibera community, especially young people towards active non-violent participation in governance as well as better leadership leading to peace and peaceful co-existence.
