The Kenya Film Classification Board (KFCB) will collaborate with the Nyeri County Government and the Kenya Scouts Association to produce a film in honor of the late founding father of the Scouts’ Movement, Robert Baden Powell.
The agreement to produce this film was agreed at by Dr. Ezekiel Mutua, Chief Executive Officer, KFCB, and Nyeri County Governor, His Excellency Mutahi Kahiga, during the Annual Founders ‘celebrations in honour of the late Movement Founder on February 24th, 2018, at Dedan Kimathi Stadium in Nyeri County.
