This grand festival included Lohana teams from Dar-es-Salaam, Mwanza, Kampala, Mombasa, Nakuru and Kisumu. However, due to the general election and other commitments, they had not really had the chance to enjoy and thank all participants. They celebrated with a friendly bowling competition and a festive meal at the Village Market in Nairobi last Saturday.
