More than 20,000 people from across the world are expected to attend this year’s Maulid festival which kicks off on Tuesday on Lamu Island.
Lamu’s Maulid Festival Organising Secretary Ustadh Idarus Muhsin has said they have already begun receiving Kenyan and international visitors.
Speaking to the Nation in Lamu on Monday, Mr Muhsin said all preparations are set for the four-day event, which runs from Tuesday to Friday.
He said Muslim faithful from various Islands of Lamu County, including Faza, Kizingitini, Ndau, Tchundwa, Matondoni, Kipungani, Kiwayu and other places of the archipelago, have already begun flocking Lamu Old Town – a Unesco World Heritage site – to mark the event.
