The film of Mawlana Hazar Imam's Diamond Jubilee visit to Kenya is now available online. This 37-minute film recounts the history of the Ismaili community in East Africa, preparations by the Jamat, and the programme undertaken by Hazar Imam during his visit to the country in April 2018. The visit brought together Jamats from the jurisdictions of Kenya, the Democratic Republic of Congo, and the Republic of Malagasy.
