Uhuru launches information portal on his 4th anniversary in office

Uhuru was sworn into office on 9th April 2013


The portal, a political hoodwink, is set to dispense information to the public of the Jubilee’s four years in power, and the impact it has had in Kenya.

State House Spokesman Mr Manoah Esipisu on Sunday when speaking from Kisumu state lodge, said that the portal will showcase various National Government programs and projects across the country.

The move comes even as the President is seeking re- election in the August General Election.

Mr Esipisu said Sunday (yesterday) marked the Fourth Anniversary of President Kenyatta’s inauguration.

“We all recall the solemn ceremonies of that April 9th, four years ago. The President and Deputy President William Ruto took their oaths of office, and we had a peaceful transfer of power, according to the will of the people of Kenya,” Mr Esipisu said.

He added: “These things are precious in themselves; they are things that make us, as a nation. We mark and celebrate them.”

He highlighted the deepening of democracy, establishment of devolution and improved quality of life as key milestones the Jubilee Administration has achieved in the past four years.

“Virtually every substantial piece of legislation required for the establishment of the new constitution has been passed by the 11th Parliament, assented to by the President. It is under his administration that the counties were set up; it is under his administration that the counties have received more than double the constitutional requirement of 15 per cent, for a total of more than a trillion shillings. If you consider these facts, together with the fact that this administration has set up critical new institutions that manage inter-governmental relations. It is clear to us that the country is making progress,” he noted.
