“HAKI YETU”

“Our right to live together”

ARTISTS FOR PEACE

Production of the peace song
“HAKI YETU”

In 2007, the chants of the phrase “Haki Yetu” (Our right to live together) became synonymous with the bloodshed of the tribal warfare that defined Kenya’s post-election crisis. A phrase meaning “our justice” became a sinister chat that struck fear into all Kenyans who heard it: a phrase meant to tell the government that it could no longer be trusted, and that justice would be at the hands of angry mobs.

When time came for the 2013 elections, a group of artists came together to reclaim this phrase – to take it back the original meaning and to inspire a country to stand united, shoulder to shoulder, in peace, love and unity, and under the rule of law.
