Video:Military bids farewell to Kibaki
After 10 years as the Commander-in-Chief of the Kenya Defence Forces, President Kibaki is set to witness a military show mounted as farewell in his honour.
The President is due to hand over power following a peaceful election, and it is expected the ceremony in which he will inspect a guard of honour will be his last.
The ceremony takes place at the Moi Air Base, Nairobi.
Officers conversant with the day’s activities told the Nation that the military show set for the President would be the kind seen only during national holidays.
“The Kenya Defence Forces will hold a farewell ceremony in honour of the outgoing Commander in Chief of the Defence Forces,” according to a statement issued by the Defence ministry.
Air Force jets are expected to fly past the presidential dais.
