On Thursday evening, Ethiopian writer Biruk Tesfaya launched his debut book One Day at the Panafric Hotel In Nairobi. The book tells the story of the triumph of kindness over evil.
Speaking during the launch, the former Ethiopian refugee, who now lives and works in Kenya, said the book was a product of his experience in his home country and also in his adopted homeland Kenya. It tells the story of the triumph of kindness over evil, strength of human spirit over brokenness and hope over despair. "I have been a witness of the best and the worst of humanity but my experience has taught me that ultimately good always triumphs over the bad and that's why I believe that hope is far much stronger than despair," Biruk said.
Entertained by the Altimate Band, guests included presidential aspirant Raphael Tuju, Suzan Mwanzia and Ambassador Daniel Makdwallo.
