LOW TURNOUT MARKS THIKA MASHUJAA DAY CELEBRATIONS

The Mashujaa Day celebrations at the Thika Sub-County Stadium on Tuesday was marked by a low turnout as most residents decided to stay away from the venue. However, this did not dampen the spirits in the fete as there were plenty of entertainment and activity in the venue.

Various local artists and comedians lightened things up. Conspicuously absent were traditional dancers who in previous occasions were the trade mark in such fetes.

The occasion which was presided over by the Deputy County Commissioner Mr. Gichero Mwai, was attended by all the national administrative and security leaders, majority of the county government senior staff and various elected and opinion leaders in Thika West Sub-County.

Meanwhile, it was business as usual in Thika's CBD and in the estates as most people decided to open business as though it was not a public holiday. Being just one day after the weekend and considering the the harsh economic conditions, Thika people found it appropriate to earn their daily bread at the expense of the importance set aside for this day.

Those who did not report to work either stayed at home or thronged various entertainment joints in the town to refresh themselves and have their little ones enjoy some free bonding with their peers.
