President Uhuru Kenyatta finally broke his silence since the end election that had tongues wagging in style with a call for peace.
The outgoing president continues with his constitutional duties even though he has no power to hire or fire any commissioner or appoint a judge.
In a meeting with the religious leaders, the president thanked the religious leaders for their support and assured them that the process of transition will be smooth.
“Kenya will remain steadfast in entrenching the principles of good governance to ensure the country upholds its position of a shining example of democracy in the continent by maintaining peace during this transition period,” President Kenyatta said.
Some of the clergy present during the meeting were Archbishop Martin Kivuva of Mombasa Catholic Archdiocese, Archbishop Antony Muheria of Nyeri, and Anglican Archbishop Jackson Ole Sapit, and the Deputy Secretary General of the Supreme Council of Kenya Muslims (SUPKEM) Hassan Ole Naado.
Others included Sheikh Yusuf Nasur Maki, Nairobi Catholic Archdiocese, Archbishop Philip Anyolo, Bishop Emeritus David Oginde, Bishop Emeritus Silas Yego, Bishop Robert Langat, Canon Chris Kinyanjui, and Father Ferdinard Lugonzo.
The religious leaders expressed gratitude to the Head of State for working towards a united Kenya by creating a path of inclusivity for all Kenyans.
After the meeting, the Head of State emphasized that the transition will be undergone peacefully as he is willing to hand over to his successor as he ends his tenure.
