Speaking to the press, Interior Principal Secretary Karanja Kibicho noted that the event was scheduled to kick off at around 11:00 a.m.

On Monday, there was a mock event at Kasarani stadium where a number of musicians were invited to perform.

Approximately 20 heads of state already confirmed their attendance including Uganda’s Yoweri Museveni who enjoys a close relationship with Ruto.

US President Joe Bidden, on Saturday, flagged off a delegation of five to attend the event among them US Ambassador to Kenya Meg Whitman.

The event comes a day before the President-elect is slated to be officially sworn-in as the fifth President of the Republic of Kenya at Kasarani Stadium.
