Kenya: Kumekucha: It’s a New Dawn

Kumekucha: It’s a New Dawn is the Kiswahili translation for “it’s a new dawn”. In coastal slang, it also means “something is going down”. The name was selected in order to symbolize a self-awakening, harnessing the idea of a new, energized beginning for Kenya regardless of our past.
