This is where this year's MADARAKA DAY celebrations will be held – RUTO knows how to reward his friends like WETANGULA unlike BABA


Monday, February 5, 2024 - The Ministry of Interior and National Coordination has announced the venue of this year‘s Madaraka Day celebrations which will be graced by President William Ruto.

Madaraka Day, celebrated annually on June 1st in Kenya, commemorates the nation’s attainment of internal self-rule from British colonial rule in 1963.

In a statement on Monday, the Interior Ministry announced that the public holiday will be marked at the Masinde Muliro Stadium in Bungoma County.

The theme for this year’s celebration will be ‘Promoting Agriculture and Food Security’

“This year’s Madaraka Day celebration will take place at Masinde Muliro Stadium in Bungoma County, focusing on the theme ‘Promoting Agriculture and Food Security,” the Ministry stated on Monday, February 5.

The announcement followed a meeting that was chaired by Interior Principal Secretary Raymond Omollo. 

During the meeting, the PS was informed of the need to upgrade the stadium to meet the standards of hosting a national event. 

PS Omollo okayed plans to kickstart the repairs ahead of Madaraka Day.

Bungoma County is regarded as the Speaker of the National Assembly Moses Wetangula's stronghold and political pundits state that this is a reward to the region for voting for the Kenya Kwanza Alliance government during last year's presidential election.
