Fourteen Second World War Veterans alongside their handlers left for Britain over the weekend to join the rest of the Commonwealth Nations to commemorate the Commonwealth Remembrance day.

The ten day visit is also meant to mark70 years after the end of the Second World War.

The fourteen include Bugi Mwita Chacha, Joshua Osamba Okelo, Abdikadir Noor Madar, Parmenas Kiana Gikuhi, Magige Nyambara Murimi, Joseph Ngari Murathe and Simon Mathuba Mukeba.

Others are Gathegi Njoroge, Joseph Inima, Dickson Swagenyi, John Mathenge, David Wachira Karume, Joseph Mathenge and Gregory Nchama.

While in Britain, the team will tour the British museum, Lancaster House, Houses of Parliament and listen to a presentation on the role of Africans and Caribbeans during the First and Second World Wars.

The veterans will also have the privilege and joy of experiencing a river cruise and dinning with Her Majesty the Queen.

The Director of Administration in the Ministry of Sports, Culture and the Arts, Mr. Wenslas Ong’ayo who saw them off sent them with a goodwill message to be good ambassadors of Kenya in Britain.
