President Uhuru Kenyatta has this evening, 7th August, thanked the Mt Kenya region for supporting his leadership in the last 10 years.
Speaking during an interview aired on all the big radio stations in the area, the Head of State said he did everything to better the lives of his people.
“I know I have a legacy. In terms of infrastructure, I have done more than the three previous administrations combined,” he said.
But the retiring Head of State noted that he would have done more if he had got enough support from his deputy, William Ruto, and his allies.
He acknowledged that the collapsed Building Bridges Initiative (BBI) was one of his priorities to bring equity in resource sharing, but the Mt Kenya region was made to believe that the constitutional amendment had been designed to create positions for some leaders.
He still believes that BBI is a deferred dream that will be realised some day.
“I’m happy for the many things I’ve accomplished. I’ve managed to bring peace and I hope that will continue,” he said.
After the interview, the President rose from his seat to have a moment of worship.
As “Nii Nigwenda Ngai Umenyage (God, I Want You To Know) song played, Uhuru was overwhelmed by emotions. The popular worship song extols God’s goodness.
You could tell he was not only singing, but also reflecting deeply on something.
