President Uhuru Kenyatta has urged Kenyans to give the jubilee administration yet another chance to finalize their development agenda.
The president further asked Kenyans to maintain peace in the run up to the general elections and not to allow to be divided on tribal and religious lines.
The president said this while giving his address during the madaraka day fete held in Nyeri.
As the political season sets in, all events seem to be laced with thin political membranes.
Despite the president and his deputy William Ruto keeping off confrontational politics during this year’s Madaraka day celebrations held today in Nyeri, the president took the opportunity to ask Kenyans to grant the jubilee administration a longer contract to head the nation.
The president urged Kenyans to remain steadfast in maintaining peace ahead of the elections and shun politicians who propagate hatred along tribal and religious lines.
Regarding the heightened political activities that require maximum security, the assurance from the head of state is that security will be provided in all, regions irrespective of political allegiance.
He did not spare individuals seeking political office.
Opposition NASA presidential candidate Raila Odinga was also in attendance but did not address the residents during the celebrations.
