Boni Khalwale Reveals One Luyha Thing That is Certified By UNESCO

Boni Khalwale is the former Senator of Kakamega County. He is known by many Kenyans for his controversy when he was an MP of Ikolomani. Khalwale revealed a long time ago that he is going to vie for the Kakamega County gubernatorial seat in the 9th August general elections. Today he led all roads to Shivakala village in the Shirere ward of Lurambi Constituency during the burial of a cultural hero Herman Dominic Handa. Handa was a renowned Isukuti soloist, player, and dancer for the Matende Cultural group.

It is during this event Khalwale revealed that Isukuti dance was certified by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization(UNESCO). The dance became the first of Kenya to get global recognition. He went ahead and indicated that if elected as the governor he will ensure that he recognizes it as an Intangible Cultural Heritage in the Kakamega County.
