Event Details

Judy Kibinge has been working on the story of the Wagalla Massacre for a while now – nearly four years. She committed to making this film after a rally in Isiolo where she saw survivors who spoke about what they had been through at Wagalla decades before. She couldn't believe all these had actually occurred here, in Kenya. She resolved to find a way to understand the anatomy of this massacre now recognised by the UN as the worst case of Human Rights Abuse in Kenya worse than the Post Election Violence of 2007/2008. She is grateful to all the organizations and people who supported and made it possible for the film SCARRED: The Anatomy of a Massacre a reality.

On Tuesday 10th February 6.30 PM this film; SCARRED, will be screened and shared for the very first time at the Louis Leakey Auditorium at the National Museum of Kenya (NMK). Spaces are limited, as it's just a one day screening in Nairobi. However, you could also catch it in Wajir on February 14th at a screening supported, like this one in Nairobi, by SID (Society for International Development).

A special batch of commemoration DVD’s (with a booklet attached) will be available, so if you can, do come for the free screening with Kshs.2,000. Half that money will go into the cost of making the DVD and booklet, while the other half to the Wagalla Massacre Foundation. We are also encouraging Kenyans to participate in a fast (even if partly) between 10th and 14th February in solidarity with the victims of Wagalla.

There will be a panel discussion afterwards too, and in the run up to Tuesday, and up till the 14th there will also be a social media campaign (Twitter hashtag: #kumbukumbuKE) where personalities and celebrities stand alongside the victims of Wagalla - and all forms of violence. Please make a point to watch and pass the one minute spots on to friends when you see them!

Warm Wishes from Docubox and the rest of the support teams
