Winter is coming to Kenya, literally, and you will not have to wait till April to see some of their favorite Game of Thrones characters.
UNDP have announced that Nairobi will be hosting popular TV show’s KingSlayer – Nikolaj Coster-Waldau- on 5th March 2017.
The star is the UNDP Goodwill Ambassador and will be in the country as part of a regional tournament for women supporting the United Nations 17 Global Goals dubbed ‘Global Goals World Cup (GGWCup).
The Danish government is proudly supporting Global Goals World Cup. The 17 global goals, including their recognition of gender equality, are fundamental for our international engagement. It is indeed worth playing for. n Kenya, the Danish government for many years has supported women empowerment, women’s sexual and reproductive health and rights – and it is still a very important focus. I am happy to invite our partners to the tournament, playing for fun, creating awareness for the millions of women and girls in Kenya for whom the fight for their rights is deadly serious
Said Ulla Tørnæs, Denmark’s Minister for Development Cooperation.
The Game of Thrones actor will referee the tournament. The winning team gets a spot in the global final to be held in New York City in September 2017.
