    Rashid Abdallah and wife Lulu Hassan of Royal Media Services and their Nation Media Group counterparts, Jane Ngoiri and Salim Swaleh wore Swahili themed outfits that were symbolic of the county (Mombasa) from which they were broadcasting from.

    Abdallah rocked a white and green turban around his head with a white Kanzu while Lulu Hassan donned a green dress with glitters of gold coupled with a headscarf.

    Jane Ngoiri, on the other hand, had on a long green dress complemented by a headscarf while Swaleh had a matching turban, a white gown covered by a black coat with yellow stripes.

    Rashid and Swaleh both wielded pirate-themed golden swords that they held during the broadcast that was live from Mombasa.

    The anchors were in the county to cover the Mashujaa Day celebrations that would be held at Mama Ngina Waterfront Park. 

    Interior Principal Secretary Karanja Kibicho revealed that over 180 Kenyans would be feted by President Uhuru Kenyatta. 

    Kibicho, however, failed to disclose some of the individuals whom the president would honour on the day, claiming that it would be a surprise.

    Despite the secrecy, marathon record holder Eliud Kipchoge's arrival at the Coast on Saturday, October 19, gave Kenyan much to speculate about. 

    Uhuru was already in the county after he arrived on Friday, October 17 to oversee the launch of the HPV vaccine in Ziwani among other official engagements.
