On June 1, President Uhuru Kenyatta will preside over his final national celebrations at Nairobi's Uhuru Gardens.
Interior Principal Secretary Karanja Kibicho said there will be enough space for 30,000 people to attend the ceremony on Thursday evening at Uhuru Gardens, where President Kenyatta will lead Kenyans in marking Madaraka Day.
The location is currently being used for Madaraka Day, an annual celebration of Kenya's liberation from British rule.
"This year's Madaraka Day is noteworthy because it will be the last for this regime, and we opted to celebrate it here rather than in the counties," PS Kibicho explained.
President Kenyatta gathered Kenyans in celebrating Jamhuri Day at the same location last year on December 12.
The celebrations for Madaraka Day will take place 69 days before Kenyans go to the polls to elect a new president to succeed President Kenyatta.
President Kenyatta was initially elected in 2013 and is currently completing his second and last term.
After Madaraka Day, the following public holidays in Kenya are Utamaduni Day (formerly Moi Day) on October 10 and Mashujaa Day (previously Kenyatta Day) on October 20.
President Kenyatta will have departed office by then, and Kenyans will have elected a new president.
