The nation will be marking its Madaraka Day celebration on June 1, Monday next week.
The celebration will be the first to happen devoid of the normal traditions, colour and grandiloquence created by entertainment and displays by the disciplinary forces and other groups.
The above is a result of the COVID-19 pandemic which has since March this year ravaged the country, the government taking different initiatives to curb its spread.
Among the measures put in place include the debarment of public gatherings, that being the protocol observed in the marking of this year’s Madaraka day.
Via a press release, Ministry of Interior notifies citizens of the Monday celebrations being done virtually meaning they will be following every development from their homes.
The virtual celebration will have documentaries and entertainment pieces being aired across the radio and TV stations present in the country.
President Uhuru Kenyatta’s televised speech will thereafter mark the end of the fete.
