President Uhuru Kenyatta’s sister, Christine Kenyatta, has urged Kenyans to re-elect the Head of State on August 8, saying that Uhuru has delivered on the promises he made to Kenyans during the run-up to 2013 general election.
Christine further says Uhuru “was chosen by God to lead Kenyans” hence all the more reason why he should be given another five years in office.
Speaking at the PCEA Kitengela Township in Kajiado County on Sunday, June 4, Christine, who was accompanied to the church service by former First Lady, Mama Ngina Kenyatta, expressed awe at President Uhuru Kenyatta’s inclusion in the G7 summit which was held on May 26-27, 2017 in Taormina municipality in Sicily, Italy.
Christine said Uhuru’s inclusion in the G7 summit is proof enough that the Head of State has won approval of the world’s most powerful nations – “an indicator that under Uhuru’s leadership, the country is headed in the right direction”.
“We have been led by good people. Search your heart and make wise decisions. Our God has given us a president whom He chose by Himself, isn’t it? Why would you not elect him back? And make sure you do it overwhelmingly so that he may come back and complete all the tasks he had started. I am telling you, when he finishes his second term, Kenya will never be the same again,” said Christine Kenyatta.
“You know last week, our President was invited in Italy for the G7 summit – you are all informed, you all have radios, you all have TVs, you all have the internet. Do you know what the G7 summit is? It shocked the entire world because our president was among the first African presidents to be invited and to speak at the G7 summit. Please, what more do people want? Isn’t it something to be proud of?” posed the president’s sister.
Uhuru was the first Head of State in independent Kenya to address the seven men and women leaders of the world’s most advanced economies.
“A freer, more prosperous Africa is a vital partner in solving some of the world’s most pressing problems: poverty, immigration, climate change, terrorism,” said President Kenyatta in Taormina, Italy.
G7 nations comprise United Kingdom, United States of America, Italy, Germany, France, Japan and Canada.
Besides Uhuru, former presidents Thabo Mbeki of South Africa and Nigeria’s Olesugun Obasanjo addressed previous G7 summits.
Mama Ngina Kenyatta in her speech, during the church service, urged Kitengela residents to embrace peace before, during and after the 2017 general election.
“Kitengela is inhabited by members of different ethnic groups, ensure you embrace peace. During this election period, ensure you live in harmony. You would hear a lot of things being said on media but remember to shun tribalism. I urge you to remain united,” said Mama Ngina Kenyatta.
President Kenyatta will face off with ODM’s Raila Odinga, among six other candidates in the race for State House on August 8.
