Danito Vadi Vadi is one of the first artist’s in Kenya to release a song urging people to stay home,keep social distance and to sanitize.
He artist who is known for his amazing vocals and catchy tunes has set a trend and shown that he loves and cares about his fans we need more artists like this.
It is not a secret that many have lost hope during these times. After the corona virus broke out world wide leaving millions jobless and sick many have lost hope.
That is why we should celebrate artists such as Kaka Chainizee who come out to encourage and support their fans through music when they are facing the harshest realities of life.
Being Kaka Chainizee’s first directorial debut we have to say it was impeccable and well executed.The song which is shot in a very serene relaxing environment that makes one calm and in the mood for worship almost instantly.
The serene environment mixed with his melodious vocals gives the song a desirable niche that can be achieved by very few.It puts one in the mood to worship naturally.
The reggae infused song encourages its listeners to turn to God in times of hardship and to never lose hope. The song has definitely come at a good time when Kenyans are facing the hardest times of their lives.

Tell us a bit about yourself: My name is Pigbin Odimwengu.I am the first born in a family of five. I went to primary school in Bomet (Chemamul B Primary School)where I was raised in tea farms.I later proceeded to Homabay Nyajanja High School and finally University of Embu where I graduated with BED (Arts) and also served as SG of student council.
2)Tell us briefly about your party and what inspired you to start a party centered around youth leadership?Accountability and Transparency Party is brainchild of youth for change initiative that I started countrywide to create youth party. I was inspired by the suffering our people go through including what I went through growing up in a poor background.When I was staying in slums of Mukuru I got more inspired to rise up and do something for my country.I believe that the problem of this country is leadership and having been trained on leadership with many youth organisations internationally and locally I felt like it’s time to create a platform for youth like me to get into political leadership and not only be youth wing/leaders but be the active leaders.
This space for youth is not practically there in many current political party due to discrimination either financially or in other ways so I decided that I will form a party for youth by youth which I will use alongside other youth to provide alternative come 2022 moving forward.
3)You have a background in education what inspired you to venture into politics?Yes I am a teacher by profession (history teacher) and being a history teacher you learn a lot about your past and be able to predict or envision the future. History and politics is inseparable and even in campus I was still SG of student union. Politics dictates policies and those policies affect everyone so I wanted to a be policy maker to make proper policies to help bring change in my country.
4)What are some of the challenges youth face when trying to get into politics?
Challenges are quite many namely:
●Many youth are still enslaved by the current tribal leaders and politics.
● Most youth don’t believe in themselves that they can make it and be the leaders of today citing financial constraints as a draw back for many.
● Most youth are so broke that it’s hard to volunteer their services to the party without pay so it’s somehow hard to convince them empty handed.
● Most youth just like everybody else have lot faith or interest in politics or politicians due to continuous betrayal by politicians who end up changing and forgetting their promises/manifesto and serve themselves and their families.
5)If someone would like to join your party how can they do that?Joining our party is very simple. You can reach us via our social media accounts on fb ATP-PARTY, Twitter @Atpkenya or even email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also just Google the party’s name Accountability and Transparency Party Kilimani Nairobi to see our website,get our contacts and get directions to our office.
6)I know that starting a party isn’t easy what are some of the challenges you have faced in getting your party on its feet?
The first challenge was finances.Starting a youth party is not easy because most youth are financially unstable.
The second challenge was lack of trust from youth as some see you as an opportunist who wants to make money.
Some feel that they know more about politics and you should follow them or beg them since they are richer and older and am young.
7)What do you feel needs to be improved in Kenyan leadership?Kenyan leadership needs leaders not politicians.Political parties should have internal mechanisms to ensure they produce proper leaders not populists.
We also need a totally new breed of leaders it’s time for old leaders to retire and usher in new breed of leadership spearheaded and dominated by youth with new ideas and integral men and women to push this country forward to greater heights.
8)What is your opinion on BBI?The document has some good proposals but the motive or the brainchild or people behind that document is where the problem lies.
Secondly I don’t support constitutional change but rather leadership change because I believe the problem of our country is the leaders that is why we are coming up with a new generation of leaders who are accountable and transparent.
We got a new constitution in 2010 and it’s only one government who haa used it. I think if it doesn’t work for them they should allow another team to try it or else constitutional changes will always be used to put people into leadership who later fail to implement and ask later for another change to put them again in power and the vicious cycle continues.
The people implementing BBI are corrupt.It will be like changing a forest with the same monkeys in it.We rather change the monkeys and retain the forest.
9)Why do you feel Kenyans choose leaders who don’t have their best interests at heart?
It’s very simple, they don’t fulfil Kenyans interest but rather loot and only increase their salaries and allowances. We can’t be suffering with poor roads and social amenities and yet we have leaders. They only enrich themselves. It’s not that they don’t know our interests but they simply don’t care.
10)Whose leadership style in Kenyan (politics) do you or have you admired?
None since they are not principled neither servant leaders.
11)What advise do you have for youth who wish to venture into kenyan politics?
I would tell them to come out in large numbers, the platform or the opportunity is here for youth by youth. Let’s make tomorrow today because today affects our tomorrow. All we need is unity and numbers not finances to contest.The numbers the party will have is what will vote you into any political seat you want
So join us and let’s walk together #pamojatwaweza
