Remarks by Kenyatta appear to have captivated Kenyans in the wake of major economic crimes against the state by individuals in government.

The President said his main agenda is ensuring Kenyans are united and that peace prevails and no one was going to stop him from implementing his mandate.

Kenyatta issued a stern warning to those involved in graft scandals saying that they should carry their own crosses.

Speaking in Kiswahili the President said; “Wewe uliiba peke yako, chukua msalaba wako peke yako. Hatutaki tena siasa duni ya kugawanya watu. Wewe ni mwizi, utafungwa na ulale jela (If you are a thief, you will carry your own cross).”

He also promised that property stolen from Kenyans would be recovered to the last coin.

The President reiterated the unity talks between him and Opposition Chief Raila Odinga whilst extending an olive branch to opposition members to join him in working towards building a peaceful nation and achieving quorum. “Kwa viongozi wenzangu, wacheni siasa ya uchafu.

“Let us come together. Let’s join hands. Let’s understand that the future belongs to us,” said Kenyatta who was speaking at the Jacaranda grounds in Embakasi East, Nairobi where he presented 50,000 title deeds to Embakasi residents.

He also gave direct orders to the Ministry of Lands to resolve issues surrounding the Embakasi Ranching Company within three months and issue title deeds.

President Kenyatta was hosted by Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko and Lands CS, Farida Karoney.
