President Uhuru Kenyatta will today afternoon give his State of the Nation address before a joint Parliament sitting to sketch out his administration’s blueprint of implementing campaign pledges and measures aimed at cementing his legacy.
In todays address which will be the first of Kenyatta’s second and last term as President, his decision to dwell on the Big Four Agenda is expected to take center stage in the speech.
The President’s main focus in the Big Four Agenda is Universal Healthcare, followed by Manufacturing, Affordable Housing and Food Security.
While his last term has been described as a legacy term, his address will also take stock of the progress the government made in his first term in office.
Dissimilar to the previous instance where the opposition MPs heckled Uhuru, the joint sitting of both the Senate and the National Assembly of the current parliament is expected to embrace Uhuru after his handshake with NASA leader Raila Odinga.
In a statement to newsrooms, State House Spokesperson Manoah Esipisu said the address would touch on measures the President has taken, and the progress achieved in the realization of national values.
