The Love and Harmony festival and event was canceled after the Kenyan police cited security concerns. The event was organized by Sol Generation for one of Sauti Sol’s members Chimano. The event was to be held at Two Rivers Mall but was later postponed due to the cancellation of the event’s permit by the police.
What is the Love and Harmony Event about?
The Love and Harmony event was about Love and Harmony as the name indicates. It, however, came under scrutiny by the authorities for its queer nature. In Kenya, homosexuality is frowned upon and even deemed illegal. As such, some critics have said that the police banned the event due to its queer nature and the fact that it seemed to promote or celebrate homosexuality.
Love and Harmony Festival Called Off Until Further Notice
Regardless of the real reason for the cancellation, the Love and Harmony Festival was called off until further notice. The organizers informed their fans about the cancellation and indicated that those that had bought tickets will be communicated to within 48 hours.
