Kalonzo lauds Jubilee for taking Mashujaa Day to Machakos
Wiper Party leader, Kalonzo Musyoka, has commended the Jubilee government for decentralising national day celebrations.
Kalonzo welcomed the government’s decision to celebrate this year’s Mashujaa Day in Machakos County.
“And if there is one thing that Jubilee has done correctly, it is to devolve national day celebrations,” Kalonzo said.
He was speaking at a reception organised by his Wiper party in his honour for scooping the African Dignitary Man of the Year 2016 award.
Musyoka was recognised by a humanitarian organisation, We Care for Humanity, for his diplomatic efforts that helped bring peace in the Horn of Africa region.
The opposition coalition, CORD, co-principal called on the people of Machakos County to come out in large numbers to celebrate, not only the Mashujaa, but also his award.
Kalonzo has promised to use the occasion to dedicate his award to Kenyans and Africans, wherever they are.
The Wiper leader refrained from delving into political debates during the event.
“I wanted this event to rise above party politics, it is for this reason that I had even invited our Jubilee friends,” he said.
The Jubilee administration will lead the country into celebrating a national day away from the capital city of Nairobi for the second time after holding this year’s Madaraka Day, on June 1, 2016, at Afraha Stadium in Nakuru.
