President Uhuru Kenyatta attracted a huge number of Kenyans in UK who wanted to have just a glimpse of the young, energetic and greatly loved president of the people of Kenya. The president reffered to the Diaspora as 48th Country. His speech started by congratulating the Diaspora for their patriotism of being Kenyan First, and proudly being ambassadors of the country. He was keen to see that the Diaspora is used actively to inform policies, using ideas and expertise of the diaspora. The president promised to have a Diaspora office in state house that will foresee issues of Diaspora swiftly delat with.
The Diaspora was represented by Cllr Elizabeth Kangethe and Sam Ochieng while the hosting was well done by Juvenal Shiundu of Kenya Society.
The crowd turned up and cued two hours before the event.Hundreds of people were not allowed but peacefuuly went away or hanged around the hotel. This reception has received a media buzz globally and the statement was made, Uhuru Kenyatta is highly loved and fully recognized by Kenyans as a wonderful president who will propel Kenya to great heights.
President Uhuru Kenyatta has again lashed out at elected leaders to stop dwelling on salary increments but to instead focus on the country’s development agenda.
Speaking during the burial of the late Makueni Senator Mutula Kilonzo, Kenyatta said it was disappointing that the leaders are busy complaining about salaries and trying to force through a pay hike.
“Sometimes it really hurts. Instead of asking how we are going to serve our people, we are asking ourselves how we are going to get more money in our pockets. Please let us do what is important first which is serving Kenyans. When we do this, I am sure the potential that we have can improve Kenya,” he asserted.
During the opening of the 11th Parliament, Kenyatta informed lawmakers that the government did not have money to support their salary demands and instead urged to focus on their work.
MPs and County Assembly members have been in heated debates that have spurred public emotions over complaints that the salaries they are getting are too low compared to the work they do.
Igembe South MP Mithika Linturi moved a Motion in Parliament to eject members of the Salaries and Remuneration Commission (SRC) from office, for reducing lawmakers’ pay.
He explained that the commission did not follow due process in setting MPs’ salaries and argued that the action was meant to punish them.
His motion got overwhelming support in Parliament despite discontent from the Kenyan population.
County Assembly representatives have also complained that their salaries are too low and have asked the government to adjust them.
Apart from the salaries debate that has caught the attention of Kenyans, MPs have been engaging in public rivalry especially over the establishment of parliamentary committees.
Kenyatta used the opportunity to urge them to desist from political sideshows that he said were derailing the country in its quest to tackle issues affecting Kenyans.
“We will continue to work together as Kenyans and build Kenya together. Too much politics will not help us. As a devolved government let us work together to improve lives of Kenyans,” he pleaded.
