Kenya Diaspora Town Hall Meeting 11/05/2012
The Kenya Diaspora Town Hall Meeting was held in Antwerp, Belgium on 5 May 2012 from 2pm to 5pm. The Kenya Embassy, Brussels, and the Association of Kenyans in Belgium and Luxembourg (AKDBL) jointly organized the meeting, bringing together Kenyans in the Diaspora to freely discuss issues that concern them, as well as discuss matters relating to the Constitution of Kenya (2010). The meeting focused on implementation aspects and how it seeks to integrate Kenyans living abroad into national development.
Several Kenyans attended the meeting and discussed the importance of the Association and its role in assisting Kenyans abroad, enabling them to live in solidarity and contribute to building their nation. The meeting provided an opportunity for the Diaspora to discuss various issues of concern, such as consular issues, dual nationality, upcoming elections and many others.
The next Town Hall meeting will be held in Turnhout, Belgium, at a date to be confirmed.
