President Uhuru Kenyatta has assured fellow Kenyans of a better New Year, 2020.
In his New Year’s message, the President admitted that many Kenyans had faced difficult economic times.
“I know that 2019 may have not been good for everyone. Some have suffered at a personal level and others had tough times in the economy.”
“The year 2020 will be better for all. Collectively, we can ensure a better living for us all.” Uhuru said.
He asked Kenyans to strengthen national cohesion and integration for a peaceful and united country.
“We should continue building bridges in 2020. Unity is key for growth and development of any developing country,” the President advises.
The government, he said, would have zero tolerance to graft, until the vice becomes a dreadful affair to all.
He also stated that his government was committed to investing in more infrastructure, despite some economists arguing that the projects have no direct impact for the citizens.
They say the government needs better policies for Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises (MSMEs) for the economy to grow in double digits.
At the beginning of November last year, the President took his advisers to task to explain the cause of economic suffering.
