Harambee is Swaheli and translates into "lets work together". It is also the national slogan of Kenya and can be seen in its coat of arms. I grew up in Kenya and at the time the late president Jomo Kenyata had a live TV appearance every week and finished his speech with "Haram - bee" - to which the crowd would yell "Hee" - repeat 3 times. Here in South Africa we have a challenge to work together and pull on the same string so to speak. I enjoyed making this image, I do hope it conveys the spirit of harambee.

Oh my@ That was a nice surprise to wake up to :-). This did very well in the initial stages of voting and then just went downhill, so I did not expect a placing at all!
Thank you everyone.
