President Uhuru Kenyatta has said that the Jubilee Government’s transformative agenda will not be derailed by the propaganda spread by the opposition.

Citing flagship projects implemented across the country since 2013, President Kenyatta said the Government’s development record speaks for itself.

“Compared to before 2013 when there were only 2.3 million Kenyans connected to electricity, today more than 5.3 million have electricity. We have issued a record three million title deeds in the short period we have been in office compared to only one million that had been issued since independence,” President Kenyatta said.

“We are building a modern railway line, we are constructing roads all over the country, providing free maternity services in public hospitals and paying exam fees for all students among many other initiatives to lift the lives of Kenyans," the president said.

President Kenyatta was speaking on at Kasarani Sports Complex in Nairobi during the Joyful Women Organization’s (JoyWo) thanks giving ceremony and annual general meeting.

Shun divisive politics

The Head of State said the Government is focused on ensuring that the lives of all Kenyans are lifted, emphasizing the need for national unity and shunning divisive politics propagated by the opposition.

“Let us join hands in ensuring that we move our nation forward and ensure that all Kenyans enjoy economic freedom and progress,” President Kenyatta said.

He also asked the opposition to stop tarnishing the good work the Jubilee Government is doing for the country and instead give credit where it is due.

During the occasion, President Kenyatta also launched the JoyWo’s 2017 – 2021 Strategic plan.

No discrimination

Deputy President William Ruto urged women to take advantage of the 30 per cent Government procurement allocation to boost their businesses.

“Do not be intimidated. This is your opportunity to work with the Government which does not discriminate any Kenyan,” the Deputy President said.

On the fight against corruption, the Deputy President said the Government will not relent in its effort to eradicate the vice.

“We want all the institutions charged with fighting corruption to do their job without fear or favour,” the Deputy President said.
