Seven-year-old Kenyan Bridget Nyambura is making a name for herself writing and reciting her award-winning poetry. She’s performed at political rallies, on television and radio, and for political dignitaries.
“During political functions she has performed ‘Wakenya kwa nini’, a poem that calls for peace. She says she was inspired to write the poem after the post election violence in 2007/2008. ‘I saw how people died during the post-poll chaos just because of politics and I decided to write a poem. I always recite it in the presence of politicians because politics was the cause of the chaos.’” (Daily Nation)
