President Uhuru Kenyatta and his deputy, William Ruto, will this year get privilege to visit Kisumu county, Nyanza region this year among other leaders from diverge parties.
This comes after interior PS Karanja Kibicho announced that this year’s Madaraka day will be held in the newly built Jomo Kenyatta International stadium in Kisumu county. Madaraka day is usually celebrated on 1st june and being a national event, president and deputy president are expected to attend. It commemorates the day in 1963 that Kenya attained internal self rule after being colonized by British.
Last year, this celebration was done virtually due to Covid-19 pandemic and president was forced to address the nation from statehouse.
This will be a privilege to people of Nyanza to address the challenges facing them as other counties that have got a chance of hosting a similar event used the chances to address their issues.
Building Bridges Initiative (BBI) and referendum issues might also be addressed as this is one of the counties that strongly support BBI and handshake.
