The Jah Jah Nyahbinghi Initiative and Conference is being held in collaboration with Mt Kailash Rejuvenation. The conference theme is Justice and Healing or Justice and Heaping (Jah Jah N I). The conference seeks to engage participants in unifying around the theme through ‘reasoning,’ discussion, resolution and call to action. The conference began July 21, 2022 and goes through August 17, 2022.

Rt. Honourable Priest Kailash Leonce & Rt. Honourable Itopia Leonce, Founders of Mt Kailash Rejuvenation Centre (MKRC) and Co-Convenors of the Conference, Ras Dr Wayne Rose, General Secretary of the Ubuntu Rastafari Movement Inc. and Co-convenor of the conference and their team have successfully amassed delegates from across the Caribbean, the Americas and world to attend the conference.

Priest Kailash Leonce often says “greatness is a choice, one makes a conscious decision to be great.” In fact, the Honourable Priest recently told student delegates of Johns Hopkins who were enrolled in the Summer program of the School of Sacrament Rastafari University (SOSACRU) at the MKRC Campus that he expects greatness from them, at least two of the seven he expects to see on major network television as a success in their designated areas of study. The visionary students replied that they may all surpass the challenge.

The Ethiopia Africa Black International Congress (EABIC) has been an integral part of the conference providing continual Boboshanti Iziz (Praise) service. The House of Nyahbinghi, St Lucia has combined with the Boboshanti EABIC to create a seven-day sacred iziz with drumming which created a sacred, mystical vibration mornings and evenings at Mt Kailash Rejuvenation Centre (MKRC).

The Conference organizers have included the pre-Emancipation staging of the unveiling ceremony of Pétronille Dwine, a Heroine who fought for freedom, escaped, and remained in Marronage until she was captured. She was placed in a pillory and died in captivity. The Prime Minister said at the unveiling ceremony: “The Saint Lucian history will be told. For too long, the names of our heroes, our freedom fighters and our ancestors were unknown. Today we began the journey of rediscovering our history at the unveiling ceremony of Emancipation Hero Pétronille Dwine.”  In time to come Pétronille will be remembered for more than the freedom fighter that caused the pillory to be banned in St. Lucia.

For Emancipation Day, August 1 –“Black over White” a Symbolic March took place and a presentation was made by the Rt. Honourable Itopia Leonce. The event was attended by the Rt. Honourble Priest Kailash Leonce, Ras Dr Wayne Rose, Boboshanti Priests of the EABIC, Empress Danni (President of the Iyanola Council for the Advancement of Rastafari) and others.Noteworthy activities held include: The 130th Anniversary of His Imperial Majesty Haile Selassie I and The 112 yr. Royal Marriage of Ras Tafari and Menen Asfaw;  Three-day Maritime Economic Symposium (Presented by Jah Jah N I Secretariat, CDF & ICAR) was held  Aug. 2-4, 2022. The final session was attended by Honourable Emma Hippolyte, Minister of Commerce, Business Development, Manufacturing, Cooperative & Consumer Affairs.The Minister brought greetings from the Honourable Prime Minister and Cabinet of Ministers she said “It is always an honor to sit and participate with our brethren. Our government before we got into office made a firm commitment to work with the grassroots, to work with our Rastafarian brothers and sisters that have received for a long time very rough treatment. When one looks at the Manifesto of the St Lucia Labor Party there is a commitment to work…One of those commitment very clearly is how do we look at Cannabis, for example that has been used for sacramental purposes. How do we take this to an economic situation for you and for the country.”

The successful symposium concluded with an important resolution and commitment to procure investment to secure maritime vessels to provide transportation for Eastern Caribbean people and in the future to extend to the rest of the Caribbean and Africa. For more information, please contact Ras Dr Wayne Rose via email at This email address is being protected from spambots.
