President commends Kenyans for electing many women in political leadership

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

President Uhuru Kenyatta has commended Kenyans for voting in many women in political positions, saying this is a sign of a progressive democracy.

He said with the election of three women governors – two on a Jubilee party – and three women senators as well as several Members of Parliament (MPs) and Members of County Assembly (MCAs), Kenya is on the right track towards its all-inclusive development quest.

The President, who spoke today during the inauguration of the new Bomet Governor Joyce Laboso, commended the residents for electing progressive leaders who are ready to work with the national Government to advance the transformation agenda. Also sworn-in was the Bomet Deputy Governor Hillary Barchok.

“I want to thank Kenyans, and especially Jubilee supporters, for choosing women to take up political leadership,” said the President.

He said with Jubilee having majority elected governors, senators, MPs and MCAs, it is clear that Kenyans chose the party to take the country forward.

“Jubilee has 27 governors, 28 senators, 31 women representatives, 170 MPs and majority MCAs. With majority at all levels, it is clear that Jubilee took the victory,” said the President.

He said although it is the right for the Opposition to go to court, it would have been wiser for them to concede defeat and allow Kenyans to continue with their development agenda.

The President called on NASA leader Raila Odinga to follow the example of his co-principle Isaac Ruto who has conceded defeat and pledged to support the new governor in developing Bomet county.

“We are waiting for the Supreme Court decision but he (Raila) should have been a gentleman like his co-principle Isaac Ruto so that Kenyans can continue with their nation-building activities uninterrupted,” said the President.

He pointed out that leadership is not about competition but rather service delivery to wananchi and urged the incoming county governments to partner with the national Government in delivering quality service to Kenyans.

Speaking after taking oath of office, Governor Laboso said devolution did not intend to create competition and enmity between the national and county governments but rather a relationship based on cooperation and mutual engagement for the benefit of citizens.

“I give you my promise that I shall steer our county away from the tumultuous waters of perennial controversy to the calm waters of consultation with fellow leaders and working in harmony with the national Government for the benefit of our people,” said Governor Laboso.

 While pledging to provide servant-leadership, Governor Laboso pointed out that the position of governor was not created so as to have people who will lord it over citizens but rather to facilitate delivery of timely and quality service.

“Our people aspired to hire a servant who would lead them in decision making, and determining how their resources would be allocated.  I give you my promise that I shall be a servant-leader,” she said.

 She said as a firm believer in law and legal instituted institutions, she would work closely with elected leaders to ensure service delivery to Bomet residents.

“We shall truthfully adhere to the law and spirit of public participation in decision making and ensure equitable distribution of resources in all wards,” said Governor Laboso.

The new Bomet Governor said in accordance to her 7-point plan manifesto, her administration will improve crop and dairy production, source markets for agricultural products and build strong cooperative societies to make agriculture a productive, attractive and profitable enterprise.

“We shall solve perennial water problems once and for all by putting up high volume tanks in every ward and work with the national Government to fast track completion of the Bosto water project,” said the new Governor.

She also pledged to work to improve the county road network and partner with the national Government to not only complete all ongoing road tarmacking projects but also initiate new ones.

“We shall ensure there is at least one dispensary per sub-location and one health centre per ward with improved maternal and child care services and upgrade medical facilities including Kapkoros, Tegat, Sigor, Sotik, Koiwa, Cheptalal and Bomet town health centres,” said the Bomet Governor.

Governor Laboso further said her administration will establish well-equipped Early Childhood Development Centres (ECD) in every public primary school in Bomet besides equipping all technical and vocational training institutes to enhance basic training for artisans and expanding infrastructure for the Bomet University.

Other speakers included outgoing Governor Isaac Ruto and Elgeyo/Marakwet Senator Kipchuma Murkomen. Senator Murkomen challenged NASA leaders to wait and respect the Supreme court verdict on the election.

He said once the decision is made Kenyans need to continue with their development agenda instead of being threatened with mass action.

The ceremony was also attended by several leaders including governors, MPs, Cabinet Secretaries and wananchi from all walks of life.

President Uhuru Kenyatta and Deputy President William Ruto today joined Catholic faithful for a Sunday mass at a Ngong cathedral where they urged Kenyans to continue praying for peace and unity.

The President said the country should steer away from tension inspired by politics and Kenyans should continue with their day-today activities without any fear.

“There is no need for tension or fear, Kenya will still be there after elections. Leave us as leaders to tackle our political issues. Kenya was there before election and it will continue to exist,” said President Kenyatta .

Governor-elect Mike Sonko (Nairobi) and Governor Joseph ole  Lenku (Kajiado) and MP Joseph Manje (Kajiado North) attended the service at St Joseph’s Cathedral.

The Head of State particularly hailed Kenyans for engaging in peaceful activities during the last electioneering period, noting that the country was maturing democratically.

He told Kenyans to leave politics to politicians and concentrate on activities aimed at improving their lives.

He thanked Kajiado residents for taking the lead in preaching peaceful coexistence among themselves with their neighbours despite the fact that the area was a cosmopolitan and with diverse political affiliations.

“Kajiado is an example to Kenyans, despite hosting different communities, it was the only Cosmopolitan county whose residents  were not drawn int the 2007/2008 post election violence,” said President Kenyatta.

He thanked the residents for voting overwhelmingly  for Jubilee candidates in the just concluded general election and urged them to continue with same Kenyan spirit of peace and unity.

Deputy President Ruto said all Kenyans are winners in the just concluded `general Election, saying the manner in which voters exercised their democratic rights was an indication that the country is maturing politically.

“Our democracy is growing as demonstrated by the way Kenyans voted during the just concluded general election,” said Mr Ruto.

The Deputy President said it was impressive that Kenyans voted to parties whose campaigns were based on issues and not ethnic backgrounds.

He said it is encouraging that leaders were now respecting the rule of law by their commitment to solving issues of elections through the courts as contained in the Constitution.

“Although we have differences in opinion, it is impressive that leaders are committed to following the rule of law in addressing such issues,” said Deputy President Ruto.

“Disputes arising from elections can always be solved through the Constitution, legal and in a peaceful manner,” added the Deputy President.

Mr ole Lenku and Mr Sonko appealed to Kenyans to embrace peace and avoid activities that can disrupt their peaceful coexistence.

“Lets embrace peace and harmonious relations because politics come and go but our development is there to stay,” said Mr ole Lenku.

“Politics is like rainy clouds, where they come and go but normal life continues,” said Mr Sonko.

Father Anthony Koikai conducted the mass and also delivered the sermon urging the faithful to embrace the gift of faith which has been given freely by God.

President tells Nairobi leaders they must deliver improved services

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

President Uhuru Kenyatta has told Nairobi Jubilee leaders that they must avoid squabbles when they take office and deliver real change to the capital city’s residents.

When he met elected leaders – from Governor-elect, Senator-elect, to MPs-elect and MCAs-elect, the President said resolving the city’s challenges was why they were voted in.

“Nairobians want to see efficient garbage collection, clean water, better traffic flow. In short, they want to see a rapid and significant improvement in service delivery,” the President said.

President Kenyatta congratulated the politicians for their poll victories but warned them that not focusing on the lives of Nairobians would cost them public confidence.

“Most of you have been elected for the first time, don’t allow power to get into your head, I have seen many taking that route and they failed. Wananchi are our bosses and that’s why we want to change Nairobi for the benefit of wananchi,” said President Kenyatta.

He said Jubilee leaders need to work as a team to transform Nairobi and deliver quality improved services required by Nairobi residents.

“We want to change Nairobi, not for the benefit of leaders, and not for the benefit of the few who are able to make it on their own, but for the majority who depend on us to change their lives,” said the President.

The President said time has come for elected leaders to put in place policies, which would transform citizen’s lives.

“If it is celebration please be moderate and thereafter start offering services. Kenyans who elected you are watching and after some time they will start questioning as to whether you are fulfilling what you promised,” he added.

The President noted that Kenyans now understand the power of a vote and if leaders fail to deliver then after five years they would be shown the door by wananchi.

The President urged them to continue preaching peace and unity amongst Nairobi residents and also initiate all-inclusive programmes which would transform the lives of young people.

“Please preach peace, tell wananchi in every estate to live together peaceful even as leaders sort out themselves. I’m counting on you to be peace ambassadors,” President Kenyatta told Nairobi Jubilee elected leaders.

Nairobi Governor-elect Mike Mbuvi Sonko who led the team said now that Jubilee won majority seats in Nairobi, leaders will work to implement Jubilee’s transformative agenda and improve services.

He said he doesn’t understand why the opposition is crying foul over the general election outcome and yet it is clear Jubilee won fairly as reflected by the number of seats it has won from MCA’s to governorship.

“We don’t understand why NASA is  saying the election was stolen, if you look at Nairobi  we won the majority seats from Members of County Assembly to Members of Parliament,” said the Nairobi Governor elect.

“Nairobi has been under opposition leadership for long but for the first time it is now under the ruling party,” he added.

Other speakers who included Senator-elect Johnson Sakaja and MP-elect Yusuf Hassan Abdi pledged to work together as a team so as to transform Nairobi and deliver quality services to the city residents.

“We will support our governor without any problem to ensure quality services to Nairobi residents,” said Kamukunji Mp elect Yusuf Abdi.

In the just concluded election, Jubilee party won nine seats for members of parliament and forty six seats for members of county assembly in Nairobi County.

President Uhuru Kenyatta held meetings on Monday in his first public appearance after the electoral agency IEBC declared him winner of August 8 elections.

The President met security chiefs at his Harambee House office in Nairobi to assess the security situation in the country.

Afterwards he thanked the police for a sterling job keeping law and order throughout the electioneering period, but urged them to exercise the greatest of restraint when dealing with any protestors.

President Kenyatta also met members of the Assumption of Office Committee — chaired by Head of Public Service Dr Joseph Kinyua —  which is tasked with managing the handover of power after elections in Kenya.

The Committee informed the President that the swearing-in ceremony for his second five-year term would be held on August 29, barring an election petition in the Supreme Court. If such a petition was filed, then an alternative date of September 12 was also in play.

At a media briefing afterwards, the President thanked millions of Kenyans who have returned to work, saying their engagements were key to moving the levers of the nation’s economy.

President Kenyatta called on those not satisfied with the election outcome to tackle their grievances by following the laid down legal mechanisms as outlined in the Kenyan constitution.

Accompanied by Acting Interior CS Fred Matiang’i and House Majority Leader in the 11thparliament Adan Duale, President Kenyatta said Kenyans don’t need to fight over an election outcome, and said police stood ready to facilitate peaceful demonstrations for those aggrieved by the outcome.

“We don’t need to fight one another, destroy property and lose lives because of an election. We continue to appeal to those who are not satisfied to use the legal mechanism which has been created by our wonderful constitution,” the President said.

He reiterated that all Kenyans have a constitutional right to express themselves in a peaceful manner, but the government would not allow the disruption of other people’s lives and property in that process.

The President also commended Team Kenya which participated in the World Athletics Championships in London for a stunning finale at the event in which they came second to the United States.

He spoke of the dazzling final night performance by Hellen Obiri over the 5,000 metres women and Elijah Manangoi’s glittering show in the men’s 1,500 metres, and the rest of Kenya’s performers, as having brought joy to millions of Kenyans. The team won five gold, two silver and four bronze medals.

President Kenyatta: I served Kenya diligently, vote for me again

President Uhuru Kenyatta wrapped up his campaign for re-election with a massive rally at Nakuru’s Afraha Stadium this afternoon.

He stood at the same grounds where he unveiled his intention to vie for the Presidency with Deputy President William Ruto as his running mate in 2013.

Afraha Stadium is also where the President and his deputy chose to hold a Thanksgiving prayer rally after they were cleared of false charges that were leveled against them at the International Criminal Court.

The stadium was packed to the brim with ecstatic crowds from all corners of Nakuru, which is historically known as the capital of Kenyan politics.

“We chose to hold our last rally of the campaign at Afraha because Nakuru is the capital city of Kenyan politics. Nakuru is special to us because it is where our journey began in 2013 when I teamed up with my brother William Ruto,” said the President

Standing before the massive gathering together with his deputy, President Kenyatta said Kenya is much better than it was in 2013 when the Jubilee Government took power.

“We have laid down the foundation for prosperity and we now need to finish the job. We have an action plan to deliver more jobs, lower prices and improve peace and security,” said the President.

He listed the achievements Kenya has made in the last four years including the construction of the Standard Gauge Railway and the construction of more than 7,000 kilometers of tarmac roads.

In some counties like Samburu, the Jubilee Government is credited for starting the construction of the first tarmac road in history. The President also cited the upgrading of at least two hospitals in each of the 47 counties to referral level status, the free maternal healthcare service, the free examination and the improvement in security.

Under the Jubilee Government, Kenya has attracted more than 1500 new companies and has hosted more than 50 world leaders including the Pope and a sitting US President.

In the last four years, Kenyan has moved 42 places in the World Bank ease of doing business ranking.

President Kenyatta pledged that his Administration will continue working for Kenyans diligently if given a second term.

“On August 8th, come out in large numbers to send our rivals home for good,” said the President to thunderous cheers from the multitudes that gathered at Afraha.

The President was wrapping up one of the most intense and well organized campaigns Kenya has ever witnessed.

Since May 29 when they handed over their nomination papers to the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission, President Kenyatta and his deputy have visited all corners of the country, making 504 campaign stops to meet Kenyans in almost all major settlements.

The President campaigned on a platform that seeks to deliver more jobs, lower prices and peace and security through an Action Plan that he unveiled earlier on in the campaign.

Besides traversing the whole country, President Kenyatta has reached more Kenyans with his message of development and progress through his weekly Facebook Live transmission, a first for a sitting Kenyan President.

The President has also commissioned and unveiled hundreds of development projects worth billions of shillings during his campaign trail, a testament to the great effort the Jubilee Government has put into developing every part of the country equitably.

In the next five years, the President has pledged to provide free day secondary school for all Kenyan children and has also promised to provide free boarding for those from pastoralist regions.

The President has also pledged to continue with the construction of the Standard Gauge Railway until it reaches the lakeside city of Kisumu. Towns along the SGR route will also benefit from the establishment of industrial parks and special economic zones that will contribute to the Jubilee Government’s plan to create 6.5 million jobs.

The President also led the gathering in prayers for peace and unity during as well as after the election.

He urged residents of Nakuru County to reject the attempts by a section of politicians to incite Kenyans against each other.

Deputy President Ruto listed reasons why Kenyans should vote overwhelmingly for Jubilee.

He said Jubilee is the only party that stands for peace and the unity of all Kenyans.

“Our competition stands for nothing because it is not even a registered political party. Kenyans should not for something that they do not understand,” said the DP.

He said Jubilee is the only party that has a track record and in contrast the leading figures in the opposition have nothing to show for the many years they were in government.

The DP said Jubilee has a plan for Kenya’s industrialization that is geared to creating more than 6.5 million jobs within the next five years.

He said Kenya has achieved many economic milestones in the last four and half years including the improvement in the ease of doing business ranking where Kenya has moved 42 positions.

He pointed out that 1532 new companies have set up base in Kenya since 2013 after being attracted by the investment in infrastructure and reforms in the business legal regime as well as improvement in security.

“Jubilee is the only party with a credible and practical plan for boosting agriculture. We plan to construct 57 mega dams to increase land under irrigation by more than 500,000 acres,” said the DP.

The rally was also addressed by Jubilee leaders including the Nakuru gubernatorial candidate Lee Kinyanjui.

President unveils Jubilee candidates for Nairobi at colourful Uhuru Park rally

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

It was pomp and colour as President Uhuru Kenyatta on Fridayaddressed a mega campaign rally at Uhuru Park where he unveiled Jubilee candidates for various elective positions in Nairobi County.

 

The Jubilee candidates included Mike Mbuvi Sonko (Governor), Johnson Sakaja (Senator), Rachel Shebesh (Women Rep) and all aspirants for parliamentary seats in the city county.

 

Addressing the excited supporters who assured him they will turn out in large numbers to vote, President Kenyatta urged them to embrace a six-piece voting pattern in favour of the Jubilee Party.

 

The crowds sang in praise of Jubilee as the President enumerated the projects implemented by his administration in the city county and across the country in the last four-and-a-half years. He also highlighted his action plan that will lift the lives of Kenyans as well as create the much-needed quality jobs for the youth.

  

He said his administration has ensured equity in terms of development by spreading infrastructural and social development projects throughout the country.

 

“We delivered development across the country without discrimination. We are requesting Kenyans to give us another term so that we can continue implementing projects that will deliver more progress,” said the President.

 

The President cited the construction of the first tarmacked road in Lamu County, connecting Garissa with electricity from the national grid and the construction of an international road from Isiolo to Marsabit and the border town of Moyale as some of the projects that have transformed the face of the country.

 

President Kenyatta said he was seeking a second term so as to extend benefits to Kenyans including implementing free secondary that will ensure no Kenyan child is denied basic education from class one to form four as well as expanding the National Hospital Insurance Fund (NHIF) to cover mothers who deliver in public hospitals with their children for a period of one year.

 

“We are laying a strong foundation for industrialization, that’s why we are planning to give paid up internships for our graduates from universities and Technical Training Institutes,” he said.

  

The President pointed out that unlike the opposition which is fond of trading insults at the expense of serving Kenyans, the Jubilee administration has a proven track record that citizen can relate to.

 

“We have no time for insults, our agenda is to work for all Kenyans, that’s why when they insult us we don’t respond but rather continue working to fulfill our transformative agenda,” said the President.

 

Deputy President William Ruto said  the choice for Kenyans  in the August 8 polls will be between the transformative agenda of Jubilee and the empty rhetoric of the opposition.

 

He urged Kenyans to come out in large numbers and re-elect Jubilee to give the opposition a resounding defeat.

 

“We want to win this election with a margin of three million votes so that we stop opposition’s business of demonstrations and running to courts whenever they are defeated,” said Deputy President Ruto.

 

He said the opposition wasted their time by instituting court cases and now they have sensed defeat that is why they keep on coming up with all sorts of excuses.

 

“They went to courts on the issue of BVR kits, ballots papers and also started dragging in the military to politics. We are telling them courts and military don’t vote, it’s Kenyans who will vote,” said the Deputy President.

 

He urged Nairobi residents to vote in Jubilee aspirants from Members of County Assembly (MCA) to Governor, saying this will ensure smooth operations and services to all Nairobi residents.

 

“Mike Sonko understands issues which bedevil the residents of Nairobi. Nairobi residents have suffered for the last five years due to poor leadership. We ask you to vote for him and other Jubilee aspirants,” said the Deputy President.

 

He said the Kshs 45 billion disbursed to Nairobi County annually has not benefited the people of Nairobi because of poor leadership of the devolved unit, saying all that will change when Sonko takes over.

 

“This has been a clear waste of Kshs 45 billion that would have gone into improving service delivery for the benefit of Nairobi residents,” said the Deputy President.

 

Jubilee gubernatorial candidate Mike Sonko said once elected he will implement his manifesto for Nairobi County that will ensure a cleaner city and jobs for the youth.

 

Other speakers included Jubilee aspirants for Senate and Women Rep seats Johnson Sakaja and Rachel Shebesh respectively.
