The chairperson of the planning committee, who is also the Assistant County Commissioner, Alex Wainaina, confirmed that the preparations to mark the day are complete and all the residents should come out in large numbers for the celebrations.

“The celebrations, which are usually held on a rotational basis, will this year be held at Mangoto Primary School in Kimorori, and we are expecting over 2,000 people to grace the ceremony,’ he said, adding that guests should be seated by 9 a.m.

The ACC further assured the residents of adequate security, as the security personnel had been briefed and are well equipped to offer adequate security before, during, and even after the celebrations.

This year’s Mashujaa Day celebrations will have a special focus on Universal Health Care (UHC), which is a crucial pillar aligned with the government’s agenda and commitment to achieve the 2030 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) of ensuring that all people receive the health services they need without suffering financial hardships.

Universal Health Coverage (UHC) aims to cover the full continuum of essential services, from health promotion to prevention, treatment, rehabilitation, and palliative care, across the life course of an individual.

“During the celebrations, we will also focus on the enhancement of government services and social protection,” observed Wainaina.

Nationally, President William Ruto is set to lead Kenyans in marking Mashujaa Day at the Kericho Green Stadium, Kericho County, on October 20, 2023.
