Mobile Web East Africa is the leading mobile focussed conference in East Africa. The third edition of this prestigious event takes place at the Southern Sun Mayfair from February 19th through 21st and will bring together 140 of the leading players in the mobile space.
HAKI: Chaguo Ni Lako is designed to inspire the users through critical information placed in a fun way on a mobile phone, encouraging dialogue and contemplation about the contentious issues on forms of leadership; the rights and responsibilities of Kenyan citizens; access to and distribution of productive resources; and of livelihoods. Haki challenges the user to reflect on the choices they make and the consequences of such choices on peace in Kenya.
The campaign will be focused on ensuring that millions of young Kenyans (between 18 and 35) are encouraged to make a commitment to peace and tolerance and also raise their hands to the Tuvuke slogan NIMEJIANDIKISHA!
The game is available on both Java and Android platforms enabling users with low-end feature phones and smart phones alike to access the game for free. The game will be available on under Haki2 on the Afroes website.
Play the game, ensure PEACE for Kenya.
