The Vice President Kachali and deputy foreign affairs minister Abel Kayembe will be representing President Joyce Banda at this Kenya’s auspicious occasion.
Atupele has been personally invited by the Kenyan President-elect, according to the presidential hopeful’s personal assistant Charles Mkozomba.
Speaking to Joy Radio, Mkozomba who is accompanying Atupele said Kenya’s president-elect invited Atupele to be part of high ranking leaders attending the swearing ceremony.
Just like Atupele, Mkozomba said on Joy Radio that Uhuru is a youthful president, a development he said signifes that given chance, youths could also lead in politics better.
