The over 20 legislators from across the country had accompanied the President to Othaya Boys High School for the school’s 50th anniversary celebrations and prize-giving day.

“There will be no other government until Kenyans go for another election in 2017,” Othaya Member of Parliament Mary Wambui said.

TNA Chairman Johnson Sakaja said the opposition’s attempts to use a back door in the guise of ‘national dialogue’ to advance their political agenda will not succeed.

Mr. Sakaja advised the youth to be wary of politicians out use them to engage in demonstrations and other illegal activities, while their own children ‘enjoy life’ elsewhere.

Saying only the President can declare a public holiday, the legislators emphasized that Monday July 7 will be a working day and Kenyans should continue with their daily activities instead of heeding the opposition’s call for a rally.

The opposition have given Kenyatta up to July 7 to hold talks with them with the view of forming a ‘transitional’ government lest the President faces countywide protests.

The opposition accuse government of corruption and failing to address the increasing levels of terrorism and insecurity in the East African country, leading to low tourism revenues.

President Kenyatta assured Kenyans that the Government is steady and focused on its development agenda. He said the transformational journey the country has embarked on will not be derailed by noise makers.

“We have come here not to make noise but for development. That is our main concern –improvement of infrastructure, implementation of irrigation and other projects that will create jobs for our youth,” President Kenyatta


“Tribalism, premature campaigns, divisive politics and use of abusive language against others will not help the country in any way,” the Head of State said.

He said this year 20,000 youth will be admitted in the National Youth Service while another 10,000 will be recruited to train as police officers to boost security and also give jobs to the jobless.

On education, the President disclosed that the Government has allocated more funds for free day secondary education and also for exam fees so that no student will miss exams this year.

As a way of further mainstreaming the youth into the country’s development agenda, President Kenyatta said plans are underway to put up a Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) institutes in every constituency.

“These institutes will equip the youth with the requisite skills that will enable them engage in income activities while at the same time contributing to the country’s development,” President Kenyatta said.

He said the Government has also taken measures to remove hurdles that prevent the youth from benefiting from the 30 percent procurement the Government has allocated to them. He added that the Uwezo Fund is also in place to provide seed capital for the youth to initiate income generating activities.

Saying elections are over and the country needs to direct its energy to development, President Kenyatta said he and Deputy President William Ruto are determined to serve and unite all Kenyans.

“Our main aim is to unite all Kenyans and ensure they live peacefully because we do not want a repeat of 2007/2008 violence,” President Kenyatta said.
