Embu County To Host 60th Madaraka Day Celebrations

President William Ruto has announced that Kenya will celebrate its 60th Madaraka Day in Embu County in 2023.

According to Ruto, the theme will be ‘universal healthcare.’

On Monday, he revealed the foregoing at the Jamhuri Day celebrations at Nyayo Stadium.

Madaraka Day is significant in Kenyan history because it was on this day in June 1963 that our nation’s Founding Fathers replaced the outgoing colonial government and established Kenya’s first indigenous government.

With the act, Kenya achieved self-rule, or Madaraka, with Mzee Jomo Kenyatta as our first Prime Minister.
