Preparations are in top gear for the interdenominational prayers to be held on Sunday in Nanyuki, Laikipia County and expected to be graced by President William Ruto.
Laikipia County Commissioner Joseph Kanyiri while touring Nanyuki stadium on Saturday where the prayers will be conducted said security in and outside the stadium has been beefed.
“We are here to check on the preparations of this interdenominational prayers that we have been arranging for the past several weeks of which our President together with our government officials will attend,” said Kanyiri,
Laikipia County Deputy Governor Rueben Kamuri said it will be a great honour to host the president for a church service and urged residents to attend the prayers sessions. Over 5000 congregants are expected to attend.
Dr Ruto has been holding a retreat in Nanyuki at Fairmont Mt Kenya Safari Club for Cabinet Secretaries, Principal Secretaries and other senior government officials to chat a roadmap of Kenya Kwanza administration as the New Year begins in earnest.
On Saturday, the president met with county governors and parliamentarians to discuss how they can collaborate with the National government to deliver service to the Kenyan’s citizenry.
Some of the issues that have come out prominently in the retreat as it entered day three are improvement of universal health coverage, how to increase food productivity and low cost of living. The retreat ends tomorrow with the interdenominational prayers.
