, NAIROBI, Kenya, Oct 8 – A grand reception awaits President Uhuru Kenyatta when he arrives back in the country on Thursday morning from The Hague.
Interior and Co-ordination of National Government Cabinet Secretary Joseph ole Lenku urged Kenyans to turn out in large numbers to welcome the President who is expected to land at the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport at 8.30 am.
“I wish to inform Kenyans that the President of the Republic of Kenya, His Excellency Uhuru Kenyatta returns back from The Hague tomorrow (Thursday, 9th October 2014) at 8.30am. In this respect I am inviting Kenyans to turn out in large numbers to welcome the President,” Lenku said in a statement sent to media houses.
Lenku said the President’s procession will pass through Outering Road, Jogoo Road, Landhies Road and Haile Selassie Avenue through to Harambee House.
The Head of State was at the International Criminal Court in his private capacity after handing over power temporarily to William Ruto who is the Acting President.
“As a nation we know where we are and where want to go and we will not allow anyone to dictate to us what we should do. It is up to us, as Kenyans to decide our fate,” President Kenyatta.
