Disney’s iconic stars Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse will be in Nairobi this weekend following an initiative by DStv, GOtv and Disney to celebrate great kids’ television!

The characters will be present at the weekend at Westgate Mall between 11:00 and 16:00 on either Saturday September 1 or Sunday September 2.

Entrance to the event is free and the occasion will provide kids with an opportunity to have their photograph taken with Mickey Mouse or Minnie Mouse. Other kids’ activities will also be on offer.

Currently, the Disney Junior channel, home to Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse, are available on DStv, DStv Mobile and GOtv.
