He lauded World marathon record holder Kipchoge, who made Kenya proud when he was awarded the IAAF World Male Athlete of the Year 2018 beating off competition from other renowned athletes.

The President praised Peter Tabichi, a Kenyan teacher, who won the Varkey Foundation 2019 Global Teacher Prize.

We are proud of Peter Tabichi, who was recently voted the Best Teacher in the World; he has demonstrated our aspiration and potential to deliver world-class education standards,” remarked Kenyatta.

Kenyatta praises Allela smart glove innovation

The 25-year-old Allela, was given a special mention after he invented smart gloves that convert sign language movements into audio speech.

The Head of State noted that innovations such as the one made by Allela and other entrepreneurs and business leaders had contributed to the rise of the country's economy.

Kenyatta, who is serving his second and final term in office, pointed out that the three had showed Kenyans what could be achieved by staying true to the national values.

“These Kenyans remind us, what we could achieve, if we remained true to our national values,” explained the Head of State.
