• Kenya Defence Forces (KDF) held a farewell for their Commander in Chief.
• The Military band also sang UB40’s ‘Red red Wine’ as they bid farewell to Uhuru Kenyatta.
On Friday, the Military hosted outgoing president Uhuru Kenyatta on a special occasion as he prepares to leave office.
The Head of State was treated to a pleasant surprise of his favorite reggae songs at a time he was making an entry into Ulinzi Sports Complex where Kenya Defence Forces (KDF) had mounted a farewell for their Commander in Chief.
UB40’s ‘Cherry baby’ reggae song was playing in the background as Uhuru went around the stadium.
“Oh Cherry oh, cherry oh, baby. Don't you know I'm in love with you? If you don't believe it's true, what else is there for me to do?...Look how long I've been waiting. For you to come right in. And now that we are together. Please make all my joys come over,” the band sang.
The Military band also sang UB40’s ‘Red red Wine’ as they bid farewell to Uhuru Kenyatta.
Known for his love for the UB40 music group, Uhuru has always attended the UB40 band concert whenever they come to Kenya.
During the ceremony, the retiring Commander-in-Chief of the Kenya Defence Forces inspected a guard of honour and presented gifts to the military, among other activities.
The Head of State and the First Lady Margaret Kenyatta were received at Lang'ata Barracks by Cabinet Secretaries Eugene Wamalwa, Raychelle Omamo (Foreign Affairs), and Ambassador Monica Juma (Energy) as well as the entire KDF top brass led by the CDF General Robert Kibochi.
Students from Moi Forces Academy also played "Mr. President," praising him for the Standard Gauge Railway, internal tranquility, and achievements in the health sector.
