PS Kibicho inspects Madaraka Day fete preparations



Interior Principal Secretary Karanja Kibicho led the national celebrations committee in the inspection of the ongoing preparations for the Madaraka day celebrations to be held at the Uhuru Gardens.

Speaking after the inspection, PS Kibicho said preparations are complete.

30,000 Kenyans are expected to attend the Madaraka celebrations at the grounds on Wednesday next week.

“Last year we celebrated the event in the middle of the Covid-19 pandemic, and although we are not yet out of the woods, we have increased it from 10,000 to 30,000 people. Also, the participation of children has been included in the programme and has celebrations across the country,’’ said Kibicho.

The PS further noted that the government decided to move the event from the county rotational hosting back to Nairobi because it will be the last event for the current administration before it exits office.

“It is six months since we celebrated Jamhuri day. And because of the significance of Madaraka this year, being the last one for this regime, we decided it is good to come and celebrate it here to break the tradition we set of celebrating it in counties.

“This is Uhuru’s last Madaraka day as President,” he said.
