Independence activities kick off this weekend with Chief Cultural Officer Raymond Lawrence urging citizens to participate in this year’s celebrations, despite COVID-19 restrictions.
Lawrence says several events, including the opening ceremony, will be hosted virtually.
And though a number of activities have been cancelled, Lawrence says nationals can be part of the festivities online.
Meantime Lawrence says a number of entertaining acts will form part of Saturday’s opening.
This event will be carried live on Kairi FM radio and Kairi FM’s facebook page.
