Nyeri - Nyeri Governor, Nderitu Gachagua has asked Britain’s Queen Elizabeth II to visit Nyeri County for her 90th birthday in April next year.
Gachagua said he will write a formal invitation letter to the Queen so that plans of hosting her can kick off immediately.
Speaking at Kabiruini ASK show grounds, the Governor said Nyeri has a rich history since Princess Elizabeth became Queen in 1952 while on an official visit in Kenya at Treetops hotel.
“I am going to write an invitation letter to the Queen of England so that she can honour Nyeri in her birthday celebrations. She became a Queen while in Nyeri and thus we are privileged,” said Gachagua.
