Madaraka day celebrations to be held online

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.
