Bo­mas of Kenya has re­opened for busi­ness four months af­ter it was closed over the Gen­eral Elec­tion.

The mu­sic and cul­tural cen­tre, which of­fi­cially re­opened for busi­ness on Novem­ber 6, is now invit­ing the pub­lic for paid for film­ing, pic­nics, con­fer­ences and out­door events and for daily tra­di­tional dances and ac­ro­batic shows.

The cen­tre was closed on July 1 to al­low for prepa­ra­tions for polls af­ter it was se­lected as the na­tional tal­ly­ing cen­tre.

The area was only ac­ces­si­ble to ac­cred­ited agents and top elec­tion of­fi­cials dur­ing that pe­riod.

The cen­tre was meant to re­open in Septem­ber but the date was ex­tended af­ter op­po­si­tion leader Raila Odinga suc­cess­fully pe­ti­tioned against the elec­tion of Pres­i­dent Uhuru Keny­atta, which led to a new date for a re­peat poll.

The cen­tre hosts cul­tural dance shows ev­ery af­ter­noon on week­days and af­ter 3pm dur­ing week­ends and pub­lic hol­i­days. It has cul­tural vil­lages where lo­cals and tourists go to learn about Kenya’s tra­di­tions.
