Ladies and Gentlemen, Happy Mashujaa Day Let me first and foremost thank you, the Abagusii, for your warm reception.
To celebrate the cultural diversity of Kenya and strengthen our nationhood, my Administration made the decision to hold our national celebrations in the Counties, on a rotational basis. Today, Kisii joins the counties of Nakuru; Nyeri; Machakos; Meru; Kakamega; Narok and Mombasa in having played host to a national celebration. In the near future, we shall announce where next year’s Madaraka Day will be hosted. My Fellow Kenyans, We gather here today to celebrate 68 years of history and heroism as a country. We are well aware, that the Abagusii Community is not short of heroes.
