KENYANS TOLD TO STOP TRIBALISM

Mr. Rao was speaking at the University of Nairobi on the topic ‘Asians – The 44th Tribe – Its significance and role past, present and future.’ The event which was held on May 27, 2018, was organized by the Kenya-India Friendship Association (KIFA).
 
“There is an increasing acceptance by Africans that the present day Asians are loyal to Kenya and regard themselves as Kenyans and NOT just Indians or Pakistanis,” he noted. “And to my Asian friends I say that there is no magic in being the 44th tribe. If we want to be considered a tribe let us consider and be accepted as one of Kenya’s 44 tribes and NOT be relegated to 44th position. We are all Kenyans and despite our diversity of religions and faiths we had no religious conflict in our 50 years plus of existence. Something that Kenya and Kenyans should be proud of.”
