On day three of the Jamafest people continued to come in droves to Petit Stade where Arts and crafts pieces, cultural wear, music and dance, literary works, foods and beverages are being showcased.

Despite the afternoon drizzle that briefly interrupted the exhibition, people continued to buy goods and enjoy music and cultural dances exhibited by various groups. “This is my first time to come to Rwanda but I don’t want this exhibition to end, I’ve learned a lot from Rwandan people, they are so polite and friendly,” said Mollen Adell, a visual art exhibitor from Kenya.

 “This is amazing, I’ve never been in the same area  with so many foreigners, seeing their dance, clothers and food is like I’m in different country at the same time, Its so sad the exhibition is ending this week,” said an excited Gashumba Irene, a KIE student.

“Unlike the first day where the heavy down pour disturbed us, the exhibition is going well. People are  coming in huge numbers and they are buying. On my stand, people seem to like our sandals and drums and bangles,” said Mpewenimana Leonard, an exhibitor from Burundi.

The event that is scheduled to close on 16th is expected to promote tourism in Rwanda and exchange of cultural values between the East African Community (EAC) member countries.
