Pauline Njoroge Blasts MC for Stating it is the 58th Celebration to Mark Kenya's Independence

The 12th day of December every year, Kenya marks the day they got independence from the British colonialists.

This year, President William Ruto is set to led the country in his first ever Jamhuri Day celebrations at the Nyayo Stadium since he took office after the August 9th elections.

However, Kenyans are confusing on whether this is the 58th or the 59th Jamhuri celebrations Kenya is marking.

Taking to her official social media platform, renowned blogger Pauline Njoroge blasted the MC of the Jamhuri celebrations after he stated it is the 59th Independence Day celebrations as she claims that this is the 58th.

"The MC at Nyayo Stadium has confused me a bit. He says it is our 59th Jamhuri Day. Kenya gained independence on 12 December 1963, but we remained a Constitutional Monarchy under the Queen, until 12 Dec 1964 when Kenya became a Republic (Jamhuri). So as much as we are marking the 59th Independence Day today, it is the 58th Jamhuri Day. Ama?" Pauline Njoroge stated.
