KAMPALA – The East African Meat Carnival (EAMC), a quarterly event hosted by The Gardens, is set to return this month for Season II on Saturday 25th June 2022, at the Uganda Museum.
It will feature various music and meats from the East African region (Uganda, Tanzania, Rwanda & Kenya), with sizzling, mouth-watering Kenyan nyama choma taking centre stage.
Speaking at the press conference on behalf of the organisers, Mr. Paul Mwirigi noted that the carnival is coming back for the second time in a larger venue that is bound to attract more revellers.
“We are excited to host our party-goers and meat lovers as we have a lot in store for them this edition. Legendary East African Artists Jua Cali & Wyre, The Love Child, will be our event headliners with DJ Suuna Ben as a guest performer.”
