Humbled, inspired and ready to work for the people of Kenya. Thank you for this honour.
Kenya will continue to be a dedicated partner to peace, security and prosperity in the East African region. We look forward to deepening our integration.
Kenya will continue playing its key role in international diplomacy at the bilateral and multilateral levels, appreciating that we are host to major international agencies, including the United Nations.
Our immediate focus is lowering the cost of living by empowering food producers, creating jobs for our young people, creating a favourable environment for enterprise and empowering independent institutions.
