President Uhuru Kenyatta is set to preside over the Madaraka Day celebrations online following the ban on mass gatherings in measures aimed at preventing the spread of COVID-19.
On Tuesday, Interior Principal Secretary Eng. Karanja Kibicho said the celebrations will be streamed through all media houses and social media platforms.
Mr. Kibicho said that the prevailing situation of COVID-19 pandemic has made it difficult to have public gatherings to mark the day.
Kenya has so far recorded 1,348 infections and 52 deaths by May 26, with a warning from the Ministry of Health that the worst is yet to come even as the government mulls easing restrictions.
