As Kenyans marked the 58th anniversary of freedom from colonial rule on Tuesday, June 1, many public figures joined the country in celebrating the big day.

One of those celebs was the Jamaican star who shared a lovely message noting it was with love.

She wrote:

"Happy Madaraka Day (several Kenyan flags) #254, wid love from jamaica (sic)."

Showing their gratitude, Kenyans went on the Missing You crooner's comment section to reciprocate the love with some noting they miss hee greatly.

Here are a few of the replies:

Another Jamaican star to celebrate Kenya was singer Etana who shared the cover of her recently released Pamoja album, with subsequent tweets about togetherness.

During the Madaraka Day celebrations which took place in Kisumu, President Uhuru Kenyatta left many stunned after breaking the protocol to allow Raila Odinga to speak.

Uhuru, who had been invited to the stage by Deputy President William Ruto, first apologised to the audience for pausing his speech to welcome Raila to make his address.

Ordinarily, Raila would speak before Ruto, who then should invite Uhuru to give his remarks to close the ceremony.

The ODM leader used the opportunity to remind the public of the national unity of purpose in nation-building.

He observed that most Kenyans were undergoing hard economic times due to the coronavirus hence an urgent need for the government to initiate and implement an economic recovery plan.
