SPEECH BY H.E. HON. UHURU KENYATTA, C.G.H., PRESIDENT AND COMMANDER-IN-CHIEF OF THE DEFENCE FORCES OF THE REPUBLIC OF KENYA DURING HIS INAUGURATION AND SWEARING-IN CEREMONY ON TUESDAY, 9TH APRIL 2013 AT THE MOI INTERNATIONAL SPORTS COMPLEX, NAIROBI.

o Your Excellency Hon.Mwai Kibaki, C.G.H., M.P.;
o Your Excellency Daniel arap Moi;
o Your Excellencies, Visiting Heads of State & Government;
o Chief Justice Willy Mutunga;
o All our Invited Guests;
o Fellow Kenyans,

Let me begin by thanking all Heads of State present and the representatives of Heads of State for choosing to be here as a symbol of your continued support and goodwill towards Kenyans.

I particularly note, with gratitude, the large presence of our brothers and sisters from across the continent. This is a clear indication of your commitment to the Pan-African agenda. You have bestowed a great honor on me and our country by being here. On behalf of the Kenyan people I welcome all of you to Kenya. Karibuni Sana!

Let me also acknowledge with gratitude and respect the distinguished service of my predecessors. President Mwai Kibaki, a true statesman and a great leader who over the past 10 years has laid a firm foundation for the future prosperity of our country. Asante sana Mzee. Shukrani nyingi sana.

I pay tribute also to former President Moi who is with us today and thank him for his years of leadership and dedication to our nation. Asante Mzee!

With humility and respect, I acknowledge and pay tribute to the memory of my father, the late founding father of our nation, Mzee Jomo Kenyatta. May he and his fellow architects of liberation in Kenya and Africa as a whole rest in peace with the knowledge that this generation is committed to fulfilling their dreams of for our nation and our continent.

I would like to thank all my worthy opponents in the recently completed presidential election. Every one of you helped define and make stronger our democracy. Because of you, Kenyans had real choices. Because of you, Kenyans felt free to exercise their sovereign will. Thank you all.
In an open and free democracy, there is a vital role for a vibrant opposition that helps to hold the Government to account. Kenya is such a democracy, and as President I will respect that role just as I will champion the right of every Kenyan to speak their mind free of fear of reprisal or condemnation.
Fellow Kenyans,

Our nation has now successfully navigated the most complex general election in our history. Our journey began three years ago, with the promulgation of a new constitution, and ended eleven days ago, with a landmark Supreme Court decision. Ours has been an unusual story. An unconventional path. We have been praised and criticized in turn – depending on who was telling our story. Yet while some watched the unfolding national events with skepticism, resigned to what they believed was the inevitability of chaos, others, the vast majority, looked upon our nation with a tempered hope; cheering us on not only because they believed in us but because they knew that if Kenya succeeded they too would succeed. For all that has been said of our nation, the records of history will attest to a number of undeniable facts.

They will outline the long queues we made, the long hours we waited to vote and the historic voter turnout of these elections. They will detail the decisions that the Kenyan media made – the professionalism and responsibility with which they acted. They will remind us of the fact that we embarked on a feat that few other countries have attempted, holding six elections simultaneously. They will call our attention to the fact that the youth were meaningfully engaged in the entire electoral period and that the political consciousness of Kenyans was at an all time high. They will list and honor the individuals, institutions and service organizations that played a strong role in this defining chapter of our nation’s history. They will contrast our accomplishments, with the fact that Kenya ventured into multi-party politics only 20 years ago further strengthening and entrenching our democracy. When the records remind us of these truths, we will recognize that at the end of the day, it is the indomitable spirit of the Kenyan people; their commitment to peace; their desire for progress and their respect for the rule of law – that was the true headline of this election story.

Where systems failed, Kenyans did not. Where decisions were delayed and ambiguity prevailed, Kenyans were patient – seeking and waiting for clarity. Where contentious issues arose to stir up dissent, Kenyans exercised restraint; peacefully sought redress and submitted themselves again to the constitution and the rule of law – united in the belief that God’s judgment would guide that of men.

Today, I am humbled and honouredhonoured to accept the mantle of leadership that the people of Kenya have bestowed on me. I will lead all Kenyans – those who voted for me – and those who voted for our competitors – towards a national prosperity that is firmly rooted in a rich and abiding peace in which unity can ultimately be realized. Peace is not simply about the absence of violence. It is defined by the presence of fundamental liberties and the prevalence of economic opportunities. We will not settle for a perfunctory peace that is disrupted every five years by an election cycle. Rather, we are calling and working towards a permanent peace, through which democracy is glorified rather than undermined. A peace that fosters unity.

Indeed, national unity will only be possible if we deal decisively with some of the issues that continue to hinder our progress. It will come through job creation. It will be founded on economic growth. It will be strengthened by a globally competitive education system: by the building of more schools across the nation and by ensuring that we have well thought out curricula that prepares our children for the challenges and opportunities of the 21st century. It will be upheld when all citizens are able to access affordable healthcare and protect themselves, and their children, from preventable diseases that still wage war on our populace.

It will be strengthened through the promotion of public-private partnerships and through the creation of a friendly and enabling environment for business. It will be reflected in our men and women working side by side as equals to move our country forward. It will be realized when we become a food-secure nation by investing in and modernizing the agricultural sector by equipping it with the relevant information and technology that it needs to grow. It will be confirmed when the rights of all citizens are protected through legislation that upholds the spirit of our constitution. When women and young people are both seen and heard at the decision-making table, at national as well as devolved levels of government. When all communities in Kenya are confident that they have a Government that listens to and addresses their needs.

Achieving peace and strengthening unity will be the goal of my Government.

This work begins now. We welcome all Kenyans to hold us to account.

Within the first one hundred days – we will ensure that maternity fees are abolished and that all citizens of Kenya are able to access government dispensaries and health centers free of charge. Within the first one hundred days, we will develop a framework to direct the 6 billion Kenya Shillings previously allocated for the election run-off towards establishing a new Youth and Women Fund that will be open to the youth and women from every part of this country. Within the first one hundred days, we will put measures in place to ensure that all students, joining class one next year, within the public school system receive a laptop. We made a promise to our children and we will keep it because we believe that early exposure to technology will inspire future innovation and be a catalyst for growth and prosperity.

Fellow Kenyans,

My government will immediately begin the process of supporting devolution and enabling county leadership to carry out their constitutional mandate and fulfill the pledges they made to the Kenyan people. Let us all be clear – supporting devolution is not a choice, as some claim it to be – it is a duty. A constitutional duty. One that I have sworn to uphold. Our constitution does not suggest devolution, it demands it. I urge all Kenyans to be persistent, pragmatic, patient and non-partisan, as we pursue the promise of devolved governance.

Fellow Kenyans,

Dealing with unemployment will be a priority for my government. We are committed to creating jobs and opportunities for our people – especially our young people. We will do this, by creating an enabling environment for the private sector. We will harness the gifts and talents of our youth, in order to enable sports and entertainment providers earn a profitable livelihood and make Kenya a global leader in these areas. We will make the procurement process faster, more accessible, and transparent. We will simplify the process of starting and running a business ,business, in order to make it friendly and cost-effective to do business in Kenya. We will expand electricity generation, extend the transmission network and ensure that electricity supply is more consistent and reliable. We will build on the accomplishments of the last administration in infrastructure, by increasing accessibility through roads and rail networks, as well as increasing digital connectivity. To the private sector, my promise to you is that we will create an enabling environment, so that you can play your part in creating employment and fostering economic growth.

Fellow Kenyans,

For too long our nation has exported jobs that should rightly belong to our citizens. We have focused on exporting primary products, instead of promoting value addition and manufacturing finished goods thereby creating jobs and improving our standard of living. Today, I pledge, that my administration will work towards diversifying our economic base. We will support the manufacturing industry and support all enterprises, both local and international, that strive to create finished goods using local labour and materials. I also pledge, that this Government, as the largest buyer of goods and services will take the lead in supporting local industry, by buying Kenyan first.

I have consulted with Parliament and on the 16th of April, I will address both Houses and announce a detailed government program and legislative agenda.

Fellow Kenyans,

One of the biggest challenges to national unity is the feeling of exclusion in the decision making process, hence our desire and need for devolution. That notwithstanding, my commitment to Kenya is that our national Government shall and will reflect the true face of Kenya, with the clear understanding that as we bring decision making and services closer to the people, the integrity and solidarity that binds us as citizens of one nation, must not only remain, but must be strengthened.

I am equally committed to ensuring that interests of women and the interests of young people are represented in my government. A department in my office will be dedicated to ensuring that the interests of these groups not only inform every decision I make as President, but also those of every department and government ministry. Our doors will always be open. We will never turn a deaf ear to the needs of any person or group.
We will leave no community behind.

Fellow Kenyans

To achieve these goals and to achieve Vision 2030, we must be responsible stewards of our natural resources. In light of this – my commitment and the commitment of the Government will be to support the National Land Commission as they seek to provide the land answer. My government will strive to work with all actors to ensure that the issue of land will never again be a contentious or a divisive subject but rather that land will be seen as what it truly is, a factor of production.

I also promise that we will exploit our natural resources in a way that benefits the current generation while safeguarding the interests of generations to come. I want to assure all Kenyans that we shall use all the money that comes from natural resources for development programs.

Fellow Kenyans

We will ensure that the harmony we are striving for extends to the environment. It is our heritage. It is our duty as guardians and custodians of that heritage to protect it for future generations. Indeed, my government will strike a decisive blow against all those that threaten it. My fellow Kenyans, poaching and the destruction of our environment has no future in this country. The responsibility to protect our environment belongs not just to the Government, but to each and every one of us. We will do all this, and more. Where there is uncertainty, we will revive confidence in the government’s ability to protect its citizens. Where there is disillusionment – we will restore hope. Where there is opportunity denied – we will open new frontiers, and through our actions, we will renew our faith in government as an instrument of good.

Let me reiterate that even as we work together to promote inclusion, open new frontiers and create new opportunities, we will not tolerate those who continue to threaten the peace and security of our citizens. Criminals, cattle rustlers, drug barons and agents of terror, who disrupt the peace of our society, will be met with the full force of the law and the strength of Kenya’s Security Forces. On this matter, we are resolute.

To our men and women in uniform, I say, this nation is indebted to you.
You continue to lay down your lives in service, protecting Kenyans from threats both external and internal. My government will continue to work with you and do all that is in its power to support you as you continue in your noble duty.

To our sister countries in the region – we understand that our future is joined to yours. Our peace is linked to the security and stability of the region. We deployed our armed forces to Somalia because terrorism and piracy affects all of us. Indeed in the last two decades, Kenya has invested immense diplomatic energy and resources in the quest for a stable Somalia. Our commitment to fight terrorism and eradicate piracy will remain a central pillar of my government’s policy on peace and security.

As President, I will work with the international community to strengthen its support for IGAD and the AU peace process in Somalia because a stable and prosperous Somalia is in the interest of all nations.

My fellow Kenyans

The future of Kenya depends not only on our National Unity but also on deepening our bonds with our brothers and sisters in East Africa and Africa as a whole. It is with this unity that we will prosper and truly deliver on the promise of independence and liberation from our colonial past. My administration is therefore committed to regional trade and cooperation and will continue to strengthen ties through the free movement of people, goods and investment, including the removal of tariff and non-tariff barriers to trade within the EAC. My goal is to see the continued growth of our community towards ultimate integration.

As Kenya celebrates its Jubilee year of freedom and independence, Africa too marks slightly over 50 years since the fall of colonialism. The breakaway from colonialism has not been easy. Indeed it has been fraught with great challenges and setbacks. Without fail however, the trajectory of our recent history, in Kenya as in Africa, has been one of great hope, renewed progress and palpable determination. Africa, Ladies and Gentlemen, is on the rise. Kenya sees herself as an integral part of this exciting awakening. The great renaissance spoken of a mere 20 years ago is upon us. Across the continent evidence of renewal and growth is everywhere, built on the bedrock of rising self-confidence, a growing educated, youthful population and God given abundance of natural wealth and resources.

To the Nations of Africa and The African Union – we assure you that in Kenya, you will continue to have a partner and an ally. If we stand together in solidarity I am confident that we will find the strength to thrive and innovate solutions that work for us. Of course, we join you in continuing to insist on relating with all nations as equals – not juniors.

As partners, not subordinates. In our history as nations, we have seen some of the most ardent promoters of ideals of national sovereignty and democracy sometimes fail to live by the principles they espouse, but let us remember that their failure does not justify ours.

To the nations of the world – we acknowledge that in this age of globalization, all of us are interdependent. Our economies are interconnected as indeed are our people. I pledge to continue cultivating the relationships we have had with our traditional trade partners and I say to all developing and developed nations who desire a deeper and more mutually beneficial relationship with Kenya: we are ready for partnerships, we are open for business and we invite you to invest in our country. I also want to remind the International Community that for the last fifty years, Kenya has been one of the most engaged members and one of the most prolific co-authors of international treaties and instruments.

I assure you again that under my leadership, Kenya will strive to uphold our international obligations, so long as these are founded on the well-established principles of mutual respect and reciprocity.

Central to our continued contribution to the international community, will be the understanding that the world is made up of many countries, cultures, political experiences and world-views. We must remember that no one country or group of countries should have control or monopoly on international institutions or the interpretation of international treaties. While each state has a right to its own view, it must respect the fact that it holds just one view amongst many in the community of nations.

Fellow Kenyans,

Today, work begins. The time has come, not to ask what community we come from but rather what dreams we share. The time has come not to ask what political party we belong to but rather what partnerships we can build.

The time has come to ask, not who we voted for, but what future we are devoted to. Fellow Kenyans we must move forward together. Let us remember that although we are may not be bound together by ethnicity, or cultural practices or religious conviction – our kinship rests solidly upon the fact that we have all been adopted by Kenya’s borders; we are all children of this nation, we are all bound to one constitution which calls us to rise above our individual ideologies and march to our national anthem.

That anthem reminds us of the fundamental principles upon which our prosperity must be built. It calls us to reflect on the power of peace; to recall the supreme value of freedom; to believe, once more, in the beauty of service and brotherhood; to aspire each day, to the dignity that results from hard work, and to contend for the hope that justice brings.

Brothers and sisters; Fellow Kenyans – let us move forward, together, in the spirit of our anthem and in the spirit of our constitution being confident that if we turn neither to the left nor to the right of our national values, we, as a people, will see the promised land of prosperity that our forbearers set out for.

God bless you, God bless the Republic of Kenya and God bless Africa.

    Wow….a big way to kick start your duties……..i like every word in this execellent speech…

  • http://www.anthonygitonga.com/ Anthony T. Gitonga

    The mandate is clear. Lets get on with nation building!

    • http://www.facebook.com/people/Kwessi-Pratt/100000996986819 Kwessi Pratt

      There was no clear mandate but rather largely a two community affair! We need to have a wider reach. Being pretentious wont help at all. Am actually happy president Uhuru has reached out to several groups. Thats the best way to go, for it even narrows down any chance of possible impeachment. Of course, ICC issue has its own very live inherent dangers!!!!

      • Nairobi gal

        I have read a thousand of yr posts over and over, and honestly, I can hardly understand whats is your exact stand on this whole presidential issue you got with UK, one time, you are kinda ok, then next you get all over anyone trying to stand with him. I look at this whole gone election in one way, its so over… I have seen you have talked even abt the leaders we should pray for…but let my humble self tell you one thing, Every-time we pray, God give us something, it maybe what we want or what we need… sometimes what we actually need is never packaged as we expect and over time, we reject it and keep trying to even look for signs from God to justify that. But Him who knows the actual plans of our lives, actually the Author of our lives knows whats is best for us…. Just some food for thought. Don’t get over yourself trying to analyze why God didn’t give you what you wanted, rather, Appreciate, be grateful and thankful and trust me, you will have a very satisfied life. Just pray for God to show you the doors He has opened, with this either challenge or whatever it is to you. For me, am busy looking for the opened doors in this opportunity God has given me through a new president and a peaceful election.

        • http://www.facebook.com/people/Kwessi-Pratt/100000996986819 Kwessi Pratt

          You are simply amusing my friend! For one, I have never had any issues with president Uhuru apart from ICC. My concern has been the sort of presidency a suspect would roll-out. Mind you, integrity is a major moral item in nation’s psyche. Relationship with international community of which we are part of, cant be ignored either. Its quite insulting to have our president on trial in a foreign land. It actually marks us the only ones out there! However, those who hardly understand consequences of such situation, believe such concerns are something close to hatred. You know in Kenya we supposedly dont amicably disagree! We either support or purportedly hate! These are terminologies introduced by Raila’s pugnacious supporters and now seem to have been wholly embraced by Uhuru’s supporters! Its pathetically unbelievable!!!!

          I dont know how you understood my post to some supposed Pastor, for you have made a whole meaningless mischief out of them! I just said corruption, bribery and voodoo worshipping are NOT in line with TRUE PRAYERS! Somebody elected through the above neither needs prayers nor deserves them fullstop! Whats your take on that? Your stuff is seemingly pretty incoherent!!!

          • Nairobi gal

            huh! the case now, why can’t we wait and see… first it was Johnie Carson’s threats abt consequences, just after the formal announcements were made, we had the envoy going with a letter from B.O, some of our friends who have been very vocal against the duo. Anyway, when you said abt corruption, bribery and all that supposedly to have been key in the election, and you say the prayers are not true prayers… what exactly do you mean? maybe even now am incoherent, but i love the way you judge… be careful what you do/say unto others…

          • http://www.facebook.com/people/Kwessi-Pratt/100000996986819 Kwessi Pratt

            Do you know whats normal protocol? Do you know why western powers used junior proxies in the whole matter? Do you know diplomats are junior foreign ministry officials? Do you know why only African leaders graced the occasion? These are extremely serious real issues that cant be brushed aside. There is a bigger problem than you can possibly comprehend! I dont think the matter of prayers needs further comment. Am actually surprised you dont seem to understand simple things!!!!

    Good going Mr President and your Deputy.

    Now the hard work begins. We hold you up in prayer. The journey is young, the road is long, winded and hazardous…however, you are not alone for God, the creator, Jesus Christ is with you!

    Now that president Uhuru has been sworn in, he should move quickly to unite the country. He should be awake to reality that his election was largely a two community affair. Most parts of the country voted for CORD. Only that in those areas, voter registration numbers were too low. However, the bottomline is that a bigger part of the country didnt vote for Uhuru. In such a situation, president Uhuru MUST consolidate his gains by embracing areas that rejected him at polling day. He should ignore fellows who lost election and go for people of integrity in those areas. To give out ministerial posts to people seen as traitors by their respective communities is to embark on “hopeless futility!” Loyal supporters should be rewarded with jobs that seemingly dont help grow anti-government feelings in regions that voted for CORD. Furthermore, history has shown that slapping political opponents on the face only helps to reinforce their resolve to take a different direction!

    • Concerned

      How is that possible when Jubilee even got 25% quota of votes casts in more counties than CORD

      • http://www.facebook.com/people/Kwessi-Pratt/100000996986819 Kwessi Pratt

        There are some counties/districts in Central and Rift Valley regions that were created merely for selfish political meandering. They might be many but still represent a very tiny part of the country. Infact, in an ideal situation, they are part of historical injustices! However, my point was larger than who won or lost. It was about uniting the country in true sense and bearing in mind true facts on the ground.

        • concerned

          The issue of creation of the new 80 (or 89 cant remember) constituencies by the Ligale Commission was not peculiar to Jubilee or Central/Rift Valley Provinces, was completed in 2010 long before the emergence of the 2013 elections coalition & had nothing to do with historical injustices at all. It I still remember correctly all sitting MPs then were accused of creating/carving out constituencies that favored themselves and disadvantaged their rivals. So you are still misrepresenting issues here. in fact you are insinuating foul play on part of jubilee in creation of the constituencies by the Ligale Commission which really is not even true. On the facts on the ground, numbers don’t lie. Hence the issue of true facts on the ground is not as you describe. However, I do want to Bellevue an elected and sworn in President has many mandates and among them unifying the Nation.

          • http://www.facebook.com/people/Kwessi-Pratt/100000996986819 Kwessi Pratt

            Boundary meandering which was the basis of current counties were done even before 2010. And counties were not created by or on the basis of Ligale commission. You are therefore misdirecting yourself by bringing in to play issues that dont apply! You are either in hurry to respond or you simply dont understand the whole thing. By stating historical injustices might well have been involved, I considered the fact that there are some single constituencies that can easily swallow all counties in central region and still remain with some space! For instance, in North Eastern and Eastern parts of the country, you can easily cover 300 to 400 kilometres and you still be in the same constituency! Counties in these areas are pretty few and far apart. In our own central region and some parts of Rift Valley, nearly every other village is another constituency! I was NOT blaming jubilee but merely pointing out that they won in very very small areas indeed!!!!

          • concerned

            As Philip below says, Get used to reality. I think the math is clear 50.07% vs 43% really, small areas and gaining more 25% in more counties, I think you are the one in a hurry to respond. 47 counties were created out of the original 47 districts at independence. Just get used or alternatively don’t. People vote along lines and so are not under any obligation to feel allegiance to current presidency.

          • http://www.facebook.com/people/Kwessi-Pratt/100000996986819 Kwessi Pratt

            Those so called “original districts” were created by narrow tribal forces who didnt care a thing about the country. Perhaps, they had your attitude! They thought the world ended with their tribal enclaves like you! Am quite sure president Uhuru is not that narrow. And in any case, its not about an individual here, its about the country pal. More than a half of the country didnt vote for jubilee. Central region amounts to or is even smaller than a single constituency in North Eastern or Eastern regions! Our neighboring Kambaland had only two “original” districts, while it covers nearly a half of the country! Central provice is actually less than a quarter of Makueni county! Its also far smaller than North Horr Constituency! Uhuru should conduct government business with that in mind. Whether he got 100% in a tiny part of the country is not the issue here. Its about keeping the country together. Being defeated or not is far below that. Winning is a sweet thing but it also has capacity to totally blind pal!!!!

        My idea was not about debating president Uhuru’s win. It was about true patriotism that can help unite the country for real. It wasnt about selfish bravadoes that breed enemity! Furthermore, how would a strong opposition help unite the country? We have to look beyond the pity and dont forget ICC might change the whole equation all over again! What would happen if jubilee government would not have taken the right measures? We should guard against empty selfishness that takes us no where!!!!

            Dont dilute yourself pal for nothing has changed at all! We have only gone through our normal national rites and thats all. Uhuru neither enjoys international immunity from prosecution nor can he travel to European countries. As of sanctions, it all depends on how he is going to behave towards ICC. Sanctions have pretty remained on the cards. But am sure having witnessed the elaborate swearing in, you no longer think ICC or international community for that matter, have a chance. Those are mere conceited tribal thoughts my dear! The president’s “roll-out” will (not would!) determine the consequences! Kindly mark my words.

      Praying for leaders in the true sense of religion cant be there today. Most leaders are NOT elected by God (I dont mean president Kenyatta here) but by their deep pockets and probably dark spirits. What I simply mean is that corruption and bribery cant be the work of our living God! People were only supposed to pray for likes of King Solomon, David, etc, because they were essentially religious leaders. It was more the same like Asian communities. The leader of a community is also always its respective religious leader. However, in political world of today, leaders are either voodoo worshippers or worse! Thus, when praying for them, you are only asking God to increase and empower their dark spirits! In true sense of pure God’s religion, thats awfully wrong Pastor Paul, if not worse than idol worshipping!!!!
