In December 2015, the Jubilee administration under President Uhuru Kenyatta allowed counties to host on a rotational basis Kenya’s three National Days.

 

 

Uhuru made the announcement after hosting Governors at State House, Nairobi, for the 4th National and County Government Summit.

 

 

The three national days that were to be hosted in different counties on a rotational basis include Madaraka Day celebrated on June 1, Mashujaa Day celebrated on October 20 and Jamhuri Day celebrated on December 12.

 

 

Kirinyaga will join Nakuru, Machakos, Meru, Nyeri, Kakamega, Mombasa, Narok, and Kisii counties which have already hosted the celebrations since the announcement was made.

 

 

Kibicho, while issuing the statement, on Kirinyaga county’s preparedness to host the celebrations noticed that the stadium  to be used was 80% ready.

 

 

“We are satisfied with the progress made so far. From the brief we have received from the construction team, we have never been closer to this level of preparation ahead of national holiday. This and other infrastructure meant to facilitate this year’s event will be ready by October 5,” he added

 

 

Kibicho was accompanied by PSs Gordon Kihalangwa (Public Works), Prof. Paul Maringa (Infrastructure), Jerome Ochieng (ICT), Josephta Mukobe (Culture and Heritage), Esther Koimett (Broadcasting and Telecommunications), and Charles Hinga (Housing) as well as Deputy Head of Public Service, Wanyama Musiambo.
