27 April 2015, 16:07 Joseph Njung'eh

Nyeri - Preparations for the beatification ceremony of a Catholic nun, Sister Irene Stefani are in high gear with security being a major concern.

The ceremony, which is expected to be attended by close to 300 000 people, will be held on May 23 at Dedan Kimathi University grounds in Nyeri County.

Nyeri Central deputy County Commissioner, Kaburu Kaimba, has however said security patrols within the County will be increased.

“We have increased security patrols and surveillance to ensure everybody is secure. Foreigners have started flowing in. we are asking members of the public to work together with security apparatus at the ground,” said Kaimba on Monday during a press conference at Governor Nderitu Gachagua’s boardroom.

The Governor said the government is registering taxi operators who will be involved in transporting foreigners and residents who would like to host foreigners.

He further asked individuals with variety-roomed houses to give out accommodation spaces since hotels will not be enough.

“Flow of traffic from Nyahururu, Nanyuki, Murang’a and Nairobi will be well managed. We are expecting a very huge crowd in this landmark event,” said the Governor.

Sister Irene was a nun at Gikondi Catholic Parish in Mukurweini and died in 1930.

Beatification is a step in the process of the Roman Catholic Church, that declares a person blessed as he or she approaches canonization and sainthood.
