Interior PS Karanja Kibicho has warned leaders from neighboring counties to stay away from the Mashujaa Day celebrations after claims emerged they are allegedly trying to cause havoc.
Intelligence sources, according to Kibicho, claimed that the above mentioned politicians were recruiting young people to be transferred to Wanguru Stadium, which will hold this year's Mashujaa Day celebrations, in order to disrupt the event.
Kibicho stated he could not afford to witness people spilling blood during such organized activities which are suppose to unite the country.
Only 3,000 people will be permitted into the stadium on the day of the event, according to Kibicho, with 2000 being locals and the rest coming from nearby counties.
"Despite the fact that this ultra-modern stadium has a seating capacity of 10,000 people, due to rigorous adherence to the public health Covid -19 procedures, we have limited it to only 3,000 people. We cannot afford a situation like the one in Kisumu, where many residents contracted covid-19 and died as a result of disobeying a public health directive,” Kibicho cautioned.
During the Mashujaa Day Celebrations which will be held on 20th October, Deputy President William Ruto and President Uhuru Kenyatta are set to meet for the first time in the last few months.
