Jamhuri Day is being celebrated for the 60th year today with the traditional Doodle! The word “republic” in Swahili, the official language of Kenya, is jamhuri. This day in 1963 marked the end of nearly 70 years of colonial control as the country attained complete independence and became an independent republic.
Kenyans celebrate Jamhuri Day nationwide with music, open ceremonies, and other events. Every year at the Trooping of the Colour a procession, the president gives a statement to the public about development and recognises important individuals for their outstanding achievements by giving them medals and decorations.
A lot of people wave the Kenyan flag, which is represented in today’s artwork and is composed of black, red, and green, while dressed traditional attire! Kenyans also take pleasure in delicious native dishes like sukuma wiki, which is spicy collard greens and tomatoes, and ugali, which is cornmeal made from white maize.
On Jamhuri Day, Kenyans celebrate the great sacrifices made to achieve independence, reflect on their history, and show pride in their country.
