Kenyans have been looking forward to the Jamhuri Day Celebrations that will be held on the 12th of December and it will be the last one that the current President, Uhuru Kenyatta officiates before he retires next year.

This year's celebrations will be held at Uhuru Gardens in the Country's capital Nairobi where it was reported that about 5,000 Kenyans will be let into the place to see the celebrations.

According to motorists and pedestrians on Langata Road and the bypass, there is heavy presence of the Kenya Defense Forces manning the wall who are all armed to the teeth.

The motorists on that route have expressed their concerns over how scary it is to see all those military men and women manning the perimeter wall of Uhuru Gardens.

Many Kenyans are not used to seeing the Kenya Defense Forces soldiers outside the Barracks and this is why they might be a bit scared.


However, this is a security measure as the celebrations will be held at Uhuru Gardens in the next few days and the security of the President and all the dignitaries who will be in attendance should be paramount.
