President Uhuru Kenyatta on Monday made his first public appearance after weeks of questions over his alleged absence from the public limelight.

The President was pictured in his office at Harambee House appending his signature to a number of bills accompanied by members of his government.

President Kenyatta signed into law two crucial bills, the Health Laws (Amendment) Bill of 2018 and the Assumption of the Office of County Governor Bill.

"The new health law amends the Pharmacy and Poisons Act (Cap 244), the Medical Practitioners and Dentists Act (Cap 244), the Nurses Act (Cap 257), and the Kenya Medical Training College Act (Cap 261).

"Others include the Nutritionists and Dieticians Act, the Kenya Medical Supplies Authority Act, the Counselors and Psychologists Act, the Physiotherapists Act, the Health Records and Information Managers Act and the Clinical Officers (Training, Registration and Licensing) Act," a brief statement from State House outlined.

The President is fine - Kanze Dena assures

Early on Monday morning State House Spokesperson Kanze Dena-Mararo assured the republic that President Kenyatta was fine and attending to his duty as normal.

"I have just spoken to the President this morning and he is fine. I am shocked that people say they haven't seen the President since he left China, yet on 3rd of this month he had a meeting with executives from Global Fund and there was a Statement about it," Ms Mararo stated.

The appearance put to rest a number of reports which had speculated that the President may be incapacitated or afraid to face the public after his trip to China.
