Being Nostalgic,Going Down Memory Lane As We Celebrate KENYA@50

written by Yoga David 13th December 2013

As Kenya celebrates it’s 50th birthday, we can’t help but reminisce on how far we’ve come from as a country.

As we go down the memory lane, do you remember the days when there was no Internet (social media), fancy mobile phones, video games etc. Frankly speaking those were the days that people really enjoyed themselves! It was a beautiful era.

We have some of the nostalgic stuff that will definitely make you re-live those fond memories from way back.
