This year's Mashujaa Day's celebration was marked at Wang'uru Stadium, Kirinyaga county, headed by his Excellency President Uhuru Kenyatta.
Apart from our various leaders from different parts of the country, thousands of citizens from other parts of the country were in attendance. There was even a man who trekked all the way from Nakuru.
All those who attended were in strict adherence of Covid-19 rules.
President Uhuru Kenyatta arrived at Wang'uru Stadium with the First Lady Margaret Kenyatta in a motorcade escort shortly before the event started.
Some of the leaders who attended were given the opportunity to address the crowd, led by the Deputy President William Ruto, ODM leader Raila Odinga, Kirinyaga governor Anne Waiguru, Musalia Mudavadi, among others.
The Chief Guest for this year's event was Malawi Head of State, President Lazarus Chakwera, who was glad for the honour, and gave a brief history of Kenya's relation with his country Malawi.
The president gave his speech, where he lifted the nationwide curfew, on the grounds of decline in covid-19 infection rates, and he also thanked the people for making the decline in covid cases possible.
There were several groups that entertained the guests and all the others in attendance with their different skills and talents.
Also, as required, the president inspected the Guard of Honour, as the Commander in Chief.
