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.
