 KCWA President Interview

Welcome to KCWA update: It is our Prayer that every member of the community is doing well.  
Community unity: KCWA has been holding talks and meetings with the subgroups community leaders and much progress is being made to bring all the communities together and to do everything possible for the Kenyans living in Western Australia to benefit from our associations. we call upon every member of the community to stand tall and preach unity and peace. We call upon all the community leaders in different capacities to do the right thing to bring all the members together.

At kenyan community in western Australia, we are dedicated to stepping up our efforts in addressing this issue. "Togetherness" is by no means an easy feat, but through cooperation and community empowerment we believe we can facilitate progress in this area. We are always striving to make a difference, and invite you to learn more and lend your support.

KCWA events are a great way to bring Kenyans closer together. we raise funds for a worthy cause, bring about positive change in our area, celebrate Kenyan public holidays here in Perth and  special days around the year. The Kenyan Spirit is what we plead for, coming together in support to families financially, emotionally and prayers in times of sickness, loss of loved ones e.t.c

E-Passport application
We are working with the Kenya High Commissioner in Canberra on matters that affect us in diaspora and it is a pleasure to announce that the E-passport that we have been waiting for can now be applied right here in Australia.
Please log onto the Kenya high commissioner’s website and you will find his full information on how to do your passport
https://www.kenya.asn.au/internal It is understandable and regrettable  that at this moment everyone is expected to travel to Canberra after completing the online application through e-citizen account. Please note that everything possible is being looked at for the High Commissioner to  be able to send the immigration attaché to go round to different locations and assist Kenyans in Australia to apply the new passport. Please allow a period of eight weeks for the processing of the new passport.
For those reapplying for their  Kenyan citizenship will also find useful information on the website.

 

Diaspora Policy 
There exists a diaspora policy with the government back in Kenya http://www.mfa.go.ke/wp-content/uploads/2016/09/Kenya-Diaspora-Policy.pdf and it is now under review. We call upon all Kenyans to look at it and familiarise ourselves with what is happening. All engagement is welcome and Australia has a representative, it is important to give your views and they will be taken into consideration. Please send your views to info@kenyancommunityinwa.com for onward transmission or through the Kenyan High commission to Australia website. 

 

Events
KCWA has held a number of community events and we're happy that you came out and enjoyed.  The sports event was so good and full of fun.  The family picnic was another great event that brought together family members to enjoy each others company. Not forgetting the Ladies High-Tea and most recently Women Gala that brought a large number of women together. Thank you for being a part of these events, that's the spirit!
