The Diaspora National Assembly that mirrors the Kenya National Assembly, will in each year during Madaraka day celebrations, be running parallel ceremonies to those in Kenya to honor Kenyans in the Entire Diaspora with flashy medals.
The various Governors in the DNA states who will officiate Madaraka ceremonies from their Diaspora Assemblies, will read the DNA President address transcript and thereafter, the names of recipients.
The medals will be similar but with more value than those given to people in Kenya who at times don’t deserve… and the decision at DNA was arrived at after noting that people in Diaspora are usually left out.
This was announced by the President of Diaspora National Assembly (DNA) who told the writer and I quote “Diaspora people have been neglected for too long and we shall no longer watch as jokers and those that don’t deserve, are decorated with medals”.
Dr. D.K Gitau provided the writer with a summarized report of the medals which will be as follows:
EDGH- Meaning Elder of Diaspora Golden Heart.- Highest Award
EDBS- Elder of Diaspora Burning Spear.
1st Class- Chief Order Of Diaspora Golden Heart (D.G.H.)

The ceremony will be coordinated via Skype and those receiving will get the medal a day before the Ceremony.
