President Uhuru Kenyatta's reign(2013-2022) has seen National holiday celebrations being held in different counties unlike previous years where they were only held at Nyayo stadium or at Moi Kasarani playgrounds. Recently the 57th Mashujaa Day celebrations were held at Gusii stadium, Kisii County. All these are done to promote national peace and integration.
Our reliable sources tells us that this years(2021) Madaraka Day celebrations will be held in Kisumu County. This is after Principal secretary of state department, Dr. Karanja Kibicho announced that Jomo Kenyatta grounds in Kisumu is set to host the celebrations.
"Madaraka Day has always been a distinctively local tradition. Kisumu City will host this year's celebrations on June 1, and we (the National Celebrations Committee) are impressed with the progress of the renovation works at the Jomo Kenyatta Sports Ground, the venue of the event." said Dr. Karanja Kibicho.

The celebrations are expected to be marked with Buildings Bridges Initiative ammendment Bill 2020(BBI) politics. This is after the five judges of the High Court ruled that BBI is illegal and rendered the whole process null and void. The UDA vs ODM politics are also expected to be the the agenda of the day having in mind that UDA party won the Rurii member of County assembly (MCA) by-election while ODM party scooped the member of Parliament Bonchari Constituency by-elections.
As an Opera writer I wish all my readers a happy Madaraka Day in advance.
