Diamond Jubilee visit to Kenya confirmed

The Ismaili Leaders’ International Forum has announced that Mawlana Hazar Imam, at the invitation of the Government, has confirmed that he will visit Kenya in April 2018.

Alongside engaging in activities relating to initiatives of the Ismaili Imamat and the Aga Khan Development Network, Mawlana Hazar Imam will grant a Diamond Jubilee Darbar in Nairobi for the Kenya jurisdiction Jamat, which includes the Jamats of Rwanda, Burundi, Namibia, and South Africa.

Mawlana Hazar Imam has also graciously consented to the participation in this Darbar of the jurisdiction Jamats of the Malagasy Republic and the Democratic Republic of Congo.

The announcement included a reminder that members of the community are respectfully advised that access to the Diamond Jubilee Darbar will be restricted to the Kenya, Malagasy, and Congo jurisdiction Jamats. Members of the Jamat from outside these areas are therefore respectfully requested to refrain from travelling to Kenya in the expectation of being able to participate in this event.

Mawlana Hazar Imam has expressed his intention to continue granting Diamond Jubilee visits to other Jamats during 2018.

The.Ismaili, the official website of the Ismaili Muslim community, will provide updates to the global Jamat before, during, and after the visit. To stay informed of all the latest news, follow us on social media (FacebookTwitterInstagramSnapchat) and sign up for email updates.
