machaMachakos County is set to come alive again this weekend with a major Brazilian-Kenyan family carnival.

The event will be happening on 31st May at the Machakos People’s Park and Kenyans will be treated to local and Brazilian acts as a prelude to the world’s biggest football extravaganza set to begin on June 12. The event will be open to all Kenyans. Speaking during the launch, Machakos Governor Dr Alfred Mutua welcomed Kenyans to Machakos as part of his promise to transform the county as the sporting centre of the world. He further assured Kenyans of adequate security measures before and after the event.

“We have more than 500 CCTV cameras, adequate police cars and we shall ensure thorough searches of all people getting into Machakos,” he said.
