Happy Madaraka Day, 2023

Today marks a monumental milestone in our beloved Country, Kenya’s journey – the celebration of Madaraka Day! This day, June 1st, holds a special place in our hearts and in our history. It was on this day back in 1963 that Kenya achieved internal self-rule.

The term ‘Madaraka’ – translating to ‘Authority’ or ‘Self-Governance’ in Swahili – perfectly encapsulates the essence of this day. It’s the day we took the reins, charting our own course towards a brighter future.

As we commemorate the 60th Anniversary of this pivotal event, let’s take a moment to honour and appreciate the immense sacrifices and relentless efforts made by our selfless compatriots in the struggle for self-governance. Their dedication and resilience continue to inspire us today.

Join us in celebrating this historic day. Happy Madaraka Day! Kenya, Our Strength, Our Country, Our Home! #MadarakaDay #MadarakaDay2023 #ProudlyKenyan
