Happy mashujaa day to all kenyans.


Our heroes remind us everyday that we are a nation of winners.
Because our gallant freedom fighters won, we celebrate the freedom, dignity and progress that we have won because of them. They bestowed us with a legacy that we must honour with all our lives. We cherish our nationhood, heritage and the splendor of Kenya in commemoration of the struggles and sacrifices made by our freedom fighters. We must always do them proud.
Happy Mashujaa Day!

Our past has many instances where Kenyans, who are brothers and sisters, have been incited and manipulated to turn against each other on irrational ethnic and religious grounds. As a result, lives have been lost, property destroyed and people displaced from their homes. These incidents shame all of us as a nation, and defile the memory of our heroes. We must never allow anyone, or anything to divide us. Just as we reject domination, we must also reject division and discord.
Happy Mashujaa day

Let us also honour those Kenyans who, every day, perform acts of selflessness and bravery. They include the volunteers who respond in disasters and emergencies, the philanthropists who donate to the needy and members of our security services who protect us at great risk to their own lives. On my own behalf, and on behalf of the people of Kenya, I say a big “Thank You” to all of you.
Happy Mashujaa day!

Our forefathers rejected colonialism and imperial domination in their time. We must honour their legacy, and stay true to our heritage, by rejecting all forms of domination and manipulation in our time. Let us confront without flinching those external forces seeking to thwart our collective aspirations. They may be powerful and rich, but so were the colonists. They may disrespect and even hate us; we have defeated their ilk before. The struggle to defend our independence is a daily calling for all Kenyans, and all the people of Africa.
Happy Mashujaa day!

Everyone has highs and lows that they have to learn from, but every morning I start off with a good head on my shoulders, saying to myself, 'It's going to be a good day!'.

You must take personal responsibility. You cannot change the circumstances, the seasons, or the wind, but you can change yourself. That is something you have charge of.

Happy Mashujaa Day!

Our children may learn about the heroes of the past. Our task is to make ourselves the architects of the future.

There is something about safari life that makes you forget all your sorrows and feel as if you had drunk half a bottle of champagne - bubbling over with heartfelt gratitude for being alive. One only feels really free when one can go in whatever direction one pleases over the plains, to get to the river at sundown and pitch one's camp, with the knowledge that one can fall asleep beneath other trees, with another view before one, the next night

Happy Mashujaa Day!

Ee Mungu Nguvu Yetu, we sing in the anthem,

Ilete Baraka kwetu, we call upon blessings
To rent the air of Kenya’s majesty
Ee Mungu Nguvu Yetu, we sing in the anthem,
Venerating our Heroes for their homogeneity
Harambee! Harambee! We chant without blemish
Eee Mungu Nguvu Yetu, we sing in the anthem
Ilete Baraka kwetu, we call upon blessings
Happy Mashujaa Day!

Dear forgotten (s)hero lurking in the shadows

I got your crumbled letter in a dustbin
Rotting away in waste of greed
Dear forgotten (s)hero lurking in the shadows
Now a forbidden fragrance amid filth
What is an artificial statue worth in Patrio-meter?
Dear forgotten (s)hero lurking in the shadows
Echoes of the hills will make your names sanguine
Happy Mashujaa Day!

When God created Kenya, He spoke thus:

“Let us create Mara, the Maasai and Mombasa”
And, having created them, He said it was good
When God created Kenya, He spoke thus:
“Now let us populate her with people most good”
Then God dotted it with wonderful vegetation and landscapes
When God created Kenya, He spoke thus:
“I envy Mara, the Maasai and Mombasa”.
Happy Mashujaa Day!

What is Mashujaa Day

Mashujaa is Swahili for Heroes and as such Mashujaa Day is also known as Heroes' Day.
It as a public holiday to honour all Kenyans who have contributed towards the struggle for Kenya's independence.

This holiday used to be known as Kenyatta Day, named after Jomo Kenyatta, who was first Prime Minister and then President of Kenya.

Kenyatta was a prominent campaigner for the independence of Kenya from British rule. He was arrested in October 1952 along with five others (Achieng' Oneko, Bildad Kaggia, Fred Kubai, Kung'u Karumba and Paul Ngei) on charges of being members of the Mau Mau Society, a movement engaged in rebellion against Kenya's British rulers. The accused were known as the 'Kapenguria Six'.
The detainment of the six is seen as prominent event in the struggle for independence and was therefore commemorated with a public holiday on 20 October.


When Kenya adopted a new constitution in August 2010, several changes were made to the public holidays observed in Kenya and Kenyatta Day was renamed to Mashujaa Day and the focus of the day was widened to include all those who contributed to the inoutdependence of Kenya.
