Madaraka Day

Today is Madaraka Day in Kenya. It is a national holiday celebrated every first of June. It commemorates the day in 1963 that Kenya attained internal self rule after being a British colony since 1920. Madaraka is a Swahili word for authority/power. For the hospital it is a day off from routine activities. So emergency care and surgeries continue, but clinics are closed. I am on call for the ICU today. Rift Valley Academy does not celebrate any national holidays from any country and so for them it is school as normal
