Chesta Teacher’s College in West Pokot county recently held a cultural day, where teacher trainees celebrated cultural diversity and preached peace.

The event sought to help residents interact, preserve and promote diverse cultures for peaceful coexistence. 

When not displaying their culture, students wore outfits that showcased their creativity, making dresses out of newspapers, CDs and even the banned plastic bags.

Present were county leaders and residents living on the West Pokot-Turkana border.

Key guests included West Pokot Governor John Lonyangapuo, Senator Samuel Poghisio,  Sigor MP Peter Lochakapong and Chesta principal John Surum.

Students displayed cultural practices from various communities.
