Kenyans from all across the country have welcome the New Year 2023 in different fashions, many spending the night out to witness the calendar bidding goodbye to 2022.
Some spent their New Year eve in church, others in clubs and others in camps waiting for the 12.00 midnight clock to announce the beginning of the New Year.
Towns in Western Kenya witnessed celebrations of every kind as folks held bashes and parties to celebrate with their friends and families, as others saw it as an opportunity to hold dates with their lovers.
Town residents lit fireworks, danced to music and sang to God in prayer for the New Year.
In the villages, children could be heard beating drums as the elderly flocked churches to make the last prayer before the year began.
People congregating in churches, houses and entertainment joins could be heard counting the seconds until HAPPY NEW YEAR 2023!
