Kenyatta to lead 56th Jamhuri Day celebrations at Nyayo Sports Complex

Kenya was granted self-governance by the British colonial regime on December 12, 1963 in what is now known as Jamhuri Day, a year before the country gained independence with founding leader Mzee Jomo Kenyatta as Head of State.

During this year’s fete to be marked at Nairobi’s Nyayo Stadium, visiting Barbados Prime Minister Mia Amor Mottley will deliver a special message as the designated special guest.

The event will also feature military parades by the three divisions of the Kenya Defence Forces – the army, navy and air force.

High ranking government officials including Deputy President William Ruto will accompany President Kenyatta to the national event at Nyayo and thereafter a State reception.


The event will also be graced by special envoys and foreign diplomats stationed in Nairobi.

Surinamese Foreign Minister Pollack Beighle will represent the South American nation as special envoy.
