The president had for some hours read out his speech touching on various issues as far as the governance of the country is concerned. I had the opportunity to listen to the speech thus getting some few outstanding points. The president talked of the national covenant which is sacred and encompasses all the population of the country of about 40Million.He went on and said that even when leaders disagree; the national covenant does not change and has always been the same even when our forefathers first adopted it.
Then he also said that we are a nation on the path of progress and in the move for a better tomorrow. He further added that he hopes in delivery in the promise of prosperity for every Kenyan, a commitment that his government is looking forward to achieve.
Then he turned focus on the achievements of his government in the last 12 months. He recognized the fact that we have heard of positive milestones from the Deputy president and the Cabinet Secretaries and assured the nation that his administration will continue to transform the country.
Then he also noted that Kenyans persist on working hard for a better tomorrow and so he said the best the government can do is to reciprocate this is by walking with the people by ensuring that the country is transforming with the people. He then said that the government is determined to combat poverty, ignorance and diseases and to achieve this, people are required to make an honest living. For example, he quoted that it’s now easier to register a company whereby the processes required have now been simplified.
He also said that Kenya has been named as the most improved country in the world as per the ranking of the World Bank jumping several positions to reach here. He further added that Kenya is a promising developing market that has room for potentiality.
He also touched on roads that have been fully constructed in different counties and even upcoming projects on the same. He also mentioned on plans to change the country’s education system.
The achievements he mentioned are good but it’s the hope of everyone that he does something to curb the problematic corruption that seems to be undoing the developments already done.
