Kibicho inspects 2021 Mashujaa Day celebrations’ venue in Kirinyaga
Interior Principal Secretary Karanja Kibicho on Friday inspected ongoing works at Wanguru stadium, Kirinyaga County, which will host this year’s Mashujaa Day celebrations.
The PS expressed satisfaction with the progress made in expanding the dais, installation of an irrigation system, and construction of terraces at the stadium ahead of the October 20 celebrations.
Civil works are in high gear at the facility, and the National Celebrations Steering Committee is confident the venue will be ready in time for the event.
“Only a few people knew this stadium until recently when we begun undertaking these construction works. Our goal is to make the day successful and leave Kirinyaga County with a working stadium,” he said in a statement.
So far, the celebrations have been held in Nakuru, Machakos, Meru, Nyeri, Kakamega, Mombasa, Narok, and Kisii in line with President Uhuru Kenyatta’s directive that counties host two of the three national holidays on a rotational basis.
The move was also intended to enhance national integration and showcase the investment opportunities available at the counties to national and international attention.
The team of PSs had earlier inspected the rehabilitation of Kirinyaga County Headquarters where the County Commissioner’s official residence and a State Lodge will be located.
