Let’s celebrate other shujaas on Mashujaa Day
Kenyans celebrate Mashujaa Day to remember the heroes and heroines who fought for our Independence. But there is need for the media to redefine the term mashujaa, which since the promulgation of the 2010 Constitution has only been used to refer to the freedom fighters. The media should highlight today’s heroes such as human rights activists, the KDF and many other Kenyans who volunteer and make other people’s lives better. Our athletes who make our nation proud by through winning medals should be celebrated.
