It is a story about how people in Kenya meet for different reasons to celebrate their ethnicity

Kenyan goat-eating parties

In our country, it is not a rare occasion for you to get an invite to a goat-eating party. It is somewhat a norm and people enjoy being part of it. When you get invited, many things come to your mind. First is the excitement of seeing your relatives and second is the longing to sink your teeth into the well-cooked mutton in store for you. Goat-eating parties are held for various reasons. In fact, they are the one thing that is common among all our fourty two tribes that we have. It could be that people are planning to wed and are seeking your financial help. It could also be that the wedding already happened and they want to show their gratitude for the support you gave them during the time. It could also be that someone was sick and they have just been released from hospital and after having realised the fragility of life, they decide to hold a party. All these and others are reasons why we come together to celebrate our ethnicity and African traditions.
