The government has banned county celebrations of this year’s Mashujaa Day due to COVID-19 situation of the county.
Confirming the news was Interior PS Karanja Kibicho who said that the celebrations will be done from the national level and Kenyans will follow from the comfort of their homes.
Kibicho was speaking from Kirinyaga where he inspected the ongoing construction at Wanguru stadium that will host the celebrations.

“Kirinyaga’s Wanguru Stadium is now taking shape. We have assessed the progress of the civil works, and we are satisfied that the construction team is well within the timelines we set in preparation for Mashujaa Day.
The new-look County Commissioner’s official residence in Kirinyaga, which will double up as a State Lodge, is almost complete. It will be ready in time for Mashujaa Day celebrations next month that’ll be hosted in Mwea.” Said PS Kibicho.
The government is yet to confirm the exact number of people to be allowed at the stadium that will be in line to the Ministry of Health guidelines on social distance and cut any chances of transmission.
Kenyans may also gather in huge crowds if the celebrations continue in County levels due to the rising political temperatures as the country gears towards the general elections.
