Interior Principal Secretary Karanja Kibicho has claimed that there is a plan by goons to disrupt Mashujaa day celebrations that will be held at Wang’uru Stadium in Kirinyaga County.
The Interior PS alleged that a section of politicians from neighboring counties of Nyeri, Embu, and Murang’a was organizing goons to cause chaos.
Dr. Kibicho affirmed that the Government was aware of the alleged plot adding that they would not condone hooliganism.
“Kirinyaga people are peaceful and we shall not permit foreigners to mess up the national fete for their own selfish interests,” Kibicho said while speaking in Kinyakiiru, Ndia Constituency.
His sentiments were echoed Kirinyaga Woman Representative Purity Ngirici and her billionaire husband Andrew Ngirici.
The government banned County governments from holding Mashujaa Day celebrations due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
“Kirinyaga County will be the host for this year’s Mashujaa Day. No celebrations will be held in other counties as has always been the case.
“We don’t want to escalate the spread of Covid-19, and that is why we are freezing similar activities in other counties Majority of Kenyans will follow the proceedings through broadcast mediums from the comfort of their homes,” Kibicho declared.
