President Uhuru Kenyatta State of the Nation address


President Uhuru Kenyatta says that the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI) report presents long-term solutions to pushing trials that remain to hold the country back from growth.

In his State of the Nation address on Thursday, the President said the BBI rule accommodates a future that is “bright, signalling and for all Kenyans to take.”

President Kenyatta compared himself to Moses in the Bible who sat on a mountain and saw the future as the Israelites were about to cross into the promised land, saying he can also see the future that the BBI process will deliver for the country.

“Like Moses in the Bible who sat at the top of Mount Nebo and saw the future that the people of Israel were about to cross into the promised land, I too have seen our future. This is what our future looks like. A Kenya where no one will ascend to a high public office on account of their tribe

"A Kenya where no capable person will wallow in poverty because of poor governance

"A Kenya Where our potential as a people will be exploited for the greatness of our nation. A Kenya Where we will all share equitably in the prosperity of our Nation,” said Kenyatta.

“The Future is brilliant. The Future is beckoning. The Future is here for us to take.”

President Uhuru said the route to a better Kenya began with the announcement of the Building Bridges Initiatives Report, saying that significant reforms are needed to the Constitution and other laws so as to lay the foundation for the future that the country needs.

“As a people, we must seize this constitutional moment to ensure that we deliver to future generations of Kenyans the country that they deserve. Kofi Annan aptly reminded us that, “The world is not ours to keep. We hold it in trust for future generations.” This moment in time is our meeting with destiny,” he said.

“We are a beacon of hope, an icon of peace and stability in a volatile region, and a role model for progressive African Social Democracy. These qualities are not inherent, and we must continuously water them from the well of our national commitment to a better, brighter, and more inclusive Kenya for all,” he added.
