The trophy will be in Nairobi for two days before departing to Tanzania and later on to South Africa, where it was won by Spain in 2010.

The golden trophy arrived in Africa almost two weeks ago and has already passed through Egypt, Algeria, Morocco and Ghana before embarking on a journey to West to East Africa.

President Uhuru Kenyatta, the only person entitled to lay hands on the 18-carat gold trophy, will receive the trophy on behalf of Kenyans on Wednesday.

The tour is part of Coca-Cola’s gift to Kenya as she celebrates 50 years of independence.

This is the second time Kenya is hosting the trophy, the first time being in 2009.

Kenya is among the 8 African countries that have hosted the coveted prize in the world of sports.

The public viewing is set for Thursday 28th at the Kenya International Conference Center (KICC) from 9AM until late evening, with performances from Kenya’s top artists.
