Gvt Bans Mashujaa Day Celebrations in Counties

The government has banned Mashujaa Day celebrations in Counties citing Covid-19 pandemic related reasons.

The announcement comes barely 2 weeks to the National Holiday which will be held in Kirinyaga County on October 10, 2021 led by President Uhuru Kenyatta.

Over the recent week, Kenya continues to record high cases of Covid-19 infections, which has seen the government limit public gatherings to curb the spread of the deadly virus.

The move is meant to contain further spread of Covid-19 that may arise from congestions in stadiums as Kenyans celebrate the heroes and heroines of this great nation.

Interior PS Karanja Kibicho last this week held meetings with leaders from Kirinyaga County in a bid to cool down political temperatures and unite the Mt. Kenya region as a whole ahead of the Mashujaa Day celebrations set to be held in the county.

“We agreed among leaders, to go constituency by constituency preaching peace. We joined hands with Mr. Ngirici (Andrew), you all know the history between us, and that is why he shook hands and came to an agreement as people from Kirinyaga on how we shall move forward,” Kibicho stated.

The PS has held meetings with Kirinyaga Governor Anne Waiguru, Woman Representative Wangui Ngirici, Narc Leader Martha Karua, among other leaders.

Speaking during the peace meeting ,woman rep Wangui Ngirici urged Kirinyaga people to welcome President Uhuru Kenyatta well and be orderly in the much anticipated Mashujaa day celebrations.

The grassroot peace mobilization is set to see more people from the Mount united and reading from the same script politically.
