Chakwera adorns Kenya’s Mashujaa Day celebrations | Malawi Nyasa Times

President Dr. Lazarus Chakwera visited Kenya’s national hero day called Mashujaa on Wednesday in the Waing’uru Stadium in Kirinyaga County, about 200 kilometers from the capital Nairobi.

The Malawi leader was invited by Kenyan President Uhuru Kenyatta as the main guest to the celebrations in honor of the country’s heroes, which take place every year on October 20th.

In his keynote address, Chakwera said that the two countries were linked by their road to independence, which was simultaneous and symbiotic, and that he attended the celebrations renewed fraternity in the struggles they faced and were divided.

“The struggle for independence in Malawi and Kenya is one of the things that bind us together. The struggle for independence was waged by patriots who sacrificed their joy and freedom for ours. The struggle for independence in Malawi was a struggle for the same foreign oppression. The struggle for independence was a struggle that was fought in the same decade, ”said President Chakwera.

This is one of the reasons why one of the roads that are being expanded in Malawi, Kenyatta Drive, was named after Kenya’s founding father, Mzee Jomo Kenyatta.

He said the three major cities of Lilongwe, Blantyre and Mzuzu each had at least one street named after him (Jomo Kenyatta).

“Even today, it is no coincidence that when my government decided which road to upgrade in the capital of Malawi, my government was the obvious choice for Kenyatta Drive, which connects Malawi’s parliament building to Malawi’s largest hospital.

“All because the founders of my nation wanted to make it clear to the generations to come that those who are celebrated as heroes in the struggle for independence are celebrated as heroes in Malawi and that Mzee Jomo Kenyatta embodies all these heroes and many who are still learn today. ”“ said Chakwera.

For his part, President Kenyatta thanked his counterpart for accepting his invitation to honor the tenth anniversary in the nation of Kenya, outside the capital, Nairobi.

Kenyatta said they must recognize men and women who have made and continue to make extraordinary contributions to making Kenya a more just, just and prosperous nation.

“We celebrate all the men and women who laid the foundation stone of our nation. We also commend those who have made and continue to make extraordinary contributions to bring our nation closer to its destiny to be a better, more just, more just and prosperous nation for all, ”said Kenyatta.

The two heads of state and government will hold bilateral talks on Thursday and witness the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) by the ministers of both countries.
