Today is a commemoration of the day when Kenya attained self – rule. Even with the Corona Virus crisis, the nation is still meeting at Jomo Kenyatta Stadium in Kisumu city… And we will be politicking 😂😂😂.
Talking of Madaraka, Kisumu is the main opposition base in Kenya. The president, Uhuru Kenyatta has recently been working on uniting the nation by joining hands with the opposition leader, Raila Odinga in what is known as “The Handshake.”
I honestly don’t know what to think because we only know after the elections 😂😂, but, we are hoping that they will kill the stereotypes that have powered tribalism in the country for so long.
When I was young, this was among the few days of the year when we would cook meat and chapati (the meal is a holiday tradition). Sodas (that’s what we call the likes of Coca-Cola and were also hard to come by 😂) were also taken on this day and other holidays like Christmas. I am happy that these days, I’ve become tired of both the meal and the soft drink.
