Uhuru to launch information portal as he marks 4th anniversary in office
President Uhuru Kenyatta will on Monday launch a public information portal where the tiniest details of the Jubilee administration investments of the last four years can be traced, and the impact vivid for all to share.
State House Spokesman Manoah Esipisu the portal will showcase various National Government programs and projects across the country.
The move comes as the President is seeking re- election in the August General Election.
Esipisu said Sunday 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. These things are precious in themselves; they are things that make us, as a nation. We mark and celebrate them,” Esipisu said.
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.
