When good things happen to us, we like to share those moments with our friends and loved ones. Whether it is a pregnancy announcement, an engagement, a promotion at work or a new mans, no news is too big or small to the people who matter the most to us.
We’ve all gone through a rough couple of years due to the effects of the Covid-19 pandemic and we’ve mostly focused on the bad and ugly while not really giving much thought to the good.
Some of the positive stories in Kenya that have made headlines recently include:
1. Eliud Kipchoge breaking his Berlin Marathon record
The world was overjoyed last Sunday as we got to witness Eliud Kipchoge breaking his Berlin Marathon record. Kipchoge clocked 2:01:09, wiping a whole 30 seconds from his previous record.
2. Wanuri Kahiu, a Kenyan film director, producer, and author directed the trending Neflix series dubbed ‘Look Both Ways’. Speaking about the series to Golden Globes Wanuri said, “It is an incredible story about women’s resilience. It is about women striving for excellence and that is what drew me to it.” The series also features music by Kenyan artist Blinky Bill music in one of the episode.
3. Kenya’s Rosemary Wanjiru finished second on her debut race last Sunday at the Berlin Marathon in 2:18:00. This was the second fastest debut ever run.
4. Country Queen, the first original Kenyan Drama Series, premiered on Netflix in July in 190 countries. The series is a family drama set in contemporary Kenya and was the first original dramatic series produced in Kenya to premiere globally on Netflix.
