people and one nation. We have placed ourselves under a duty to achieve a
common, shared vision for Kenya. We cannot – we dare not –allow
differences of station or function impede or delay our achievement,” he
The president also urged the cabinet secretaries to work closely with parliament to induce fast and reliable solutions to the growth of the economy.
" It demands that resources be available, and that they be applied in a
timely manner. Once again, these goals demand close discussion with
Parliament: we will find it to our advantage to share our plans and
priorities with it, so that we can be certain of its support,” he added.
The president further called on Cabinet Secretaries and Principal Secretaries to
review their service delivery so far and to bring new ideas to the
