Boronjo says the Bishop will then make a stopover at Kibuye Catholic Church, the seat of power, before making the final leg of his journey to Ukweli Pastoral Centre, in the outskirts of Kisumu City where he will spend the night before the ceremony on Saturday.

Earlier, Father Samuel Nyataya had confirmed that they had sent invitation to the head of state President Uhuru Kenyatta, his deputy William Ruto and former Prime Minister Raila Odinga.
