While delivering the 8th state of the nation address, the head of state confirmed that he would preside over the conferment ceremony on Wednesday, December 1, during a State of the Nation Address he made in Parliament on Tuesday, November 30.
Uhuru stated "As devolution takes root and as an affirmation of the equitable development we continue to enjoy and in keeping with the resolution of the Senate, I will tomorrow, December 1, 2021, have the high privilege of conferring on Nakuru Municipality, city status,"
He added "Nakuru City will join Kisumu, Mombasa and Nairobi as cities and with reputation as East Africa's cleanest town, all of Kenya looks to Nakuru City growing in leaps and bounds,"
Uhuru's affirmations comes months after Senators approved the application for the city's upgrade following years of pursuit.
