• Kenya Chapter press conference

    IARF’s new Chapter in Kenya held its first press briefing with reference to the Westgate
    shopping mall attack in Nairobi on 21 September 2013, by Somalia-based Al-Shabaab.

    The Chapter’s particular concern is a possible Islamophobic backlash against members of
    Kenya’s Somali community. It hopes to establish a media presence that advocates the
    principles for which IARF and other interfaith workers stand, against any possible religion-
    based targeting of individual or communities.

    The guest of honour was the former Mayor of Nairobi, Professor Nathan Kahara, who is a
    pioneer of interfaith in the East Africa region.
