Our story of Fumo Liyongo starts with the words of a song ‘Popo’. A song Fumo Liyongo composed and taught people in singing it and it has never been forgotten until today. In these same words Fumo Liyongo challenged the forces that had oppressed his people for many generations.
Fumo Liyongo might have died many years ago but his spirit still lives among us. And that’s why when we sing the song Popo, We remember his call on us to stand up and fight cruel leadership. Fumo Liyongo is celebrated as a hero, warrior and poet in many traditional poems. Enjoy the story as narrated by Githanda Githae and Hellen Namai.
