CELEBRATING THE LIFE OF A PATRIOT, WRITER, DREAMER, LIBERATOR, FRIEND

From International PEN Kenya chapter


CELEBRATING THE LIFE OF A PATRIOT, WRITER, DREAMER, LIBERATOR, FRIEND

Dear comrade,

Sunday the 5th will mark a month since our brother GPO Oulu was slain in cold blood. GPO was a man who burned with zeal and conviction for the rights of the oppressed and with the dream of a better Kenya. He was a man who even in death remains firmly affixed in the minds of all who knew him.

International PEN Kenya chapter, an organization that serves to promote freedom of expression, promote literature and defend and protect the rights of writers all over the world invites you to celebrate the life of GPO the essayist with us in a Reading Afternoon in his honour this Sunday the 5th of April at Wasanii restaurant at the Kenya National Theatre from 2pm to 5.30 pm. We will have readings from some of the essays Oulu prolifically wrote in his lifetime as well as have an open mic of poetry written in GPO’s honour and poems dedicated to him. This is an open event and every one of you is invited to share and read. Poems also in memory of fellow freedom fighter King’aara are also welcome.

If you would like to take part by reading one of GPO’s essays or performing a poem of your own (or even one by someone else, kindly show up on time on that day to be included in the programme. Circulate this invitation to all who knew him or all people you know that share the same dream of justice, love, peace and unity that Oulu passionately lived and heroically died for. We look forward to seeing you there.

One love.
