On Monday, international media house CNN aired an interview of President Uhuru Kenyatta with senior business anchor Richard Quest who visited the country a week ago.

The interview focused on the developing issues that the country was facing.

Here are the five things that Uhuru told Quest during the interview courtesy of CNN.

Economic Policies Set

The president stated that his government had taken the first five years to concentrate on the country’s infrastructure through improvement of the roads and railways system, better water connection and effective supply of electricity.

Uhuru explained that he has now shifted focus to the more softer aspects which include improvement of health, creation of jobs and better housing facilities which form the basis of the improvements he is to make during the remaining four years.

Problems that come with Elections

The Head of State noted that the country was moving away from having elections disorient the nation every time they are held as witnessed in previous years.

” That is why we have been really focusing ourselves on working together with even the opposition leaders and say Kenya comes first.

“We cannot be always going through this sickly cycle where we are talking and fighting about elections.

“We need to move forward,” stated Uhuru.

He pointed out that the handshake with opposition leader Raila Odinga was aimed at steering the country forward.

Financial Debt facing the Country

President Uhuru highlighted that the reason for the acquisition of the loan from China was aimed to close the infrastructure gap.

” Someone coming to Nairobi in the next 10 years, let us not talk about the rest of the country but just Nairobi, will be able to note the improvements done,” stated the President.

Uhuru disregarded claims that Kenya is only borrowing from China and stated that the country was getting financial support from other nations such as Japan and France.

“We have borrowed from China, US, the General Electric, who are the backbone of what we are doing in the health sector.

“When it comes to energy, we are working closely with AFT(Agriculture Fast Track) by African Development Bank and the World Bank,” remarked Uhuru.

The president affirmed that Kenya had a development agenda that he was fully committed to achieve before the completion of his term in office.

“From our Kenyan perspective, We have a development, social, economic agenda and we are willing to partner with any country,” stated the Head of State.

Running for a third Term

President Uhuru revealed that he would not change the constitution in order to run for a third term in 2022.

” I am not interested in a third term. People are talking about constitutional change not necessarily because they desire the president to seek a third term but due to the issues that are related to the cost of running the new constitution,” explained Uhuru.

I have not left my wife: Ex-president Jakaya Kikwete

Published

on

Former Tanzanian President Jakaya Kikwete has denied allegations that he has parted way with his wife Salma. Addressing a Chama Cha Mapenduzi (CCM) rally in Arusha on September 9 ahead of the October 28 General Elections, Mr Kiwete sought to put to rest the rumours propagated on social media.

“Should I, or should I not say?” Mr Kikwete posed to the crowd which cheered him on.

“I’ve heard that people were saying that ‘this lady has been dumped and that’s why she wants to become a Member of Parliament’. Do you want to take my wife from me? I have not left her,” said a laughing Mr Kiwete.

Making history

Mama Salma, as she’s popularly referred to by Tanzanians made history in 2017 after becoming the first former first lady to become MP after being nominated by President John Magufuli. Mrs Kikwete’s nomination was, however, viewed as a move to reach out to politicians with a big influence within CCM, as they were seen to be drifting away from the president.

After Mr Kikwete stepped down in 2015 after serving 10 years as president as per the constitution limit, Mrs Kikwete vigorously campaigned for Mr Bernard Membe, a close family friend to clinch the CCM seat and succeed her husband.

Soon after clinching the seat, rumours started swirling that President Magufuli’s crackdown on tax evasion at the Port of Dar es Salaam put him at odds with the Kikwete family as firms they were in business with were under investigation.

However, Mr Kikwete and President Magufuli both dismissed the allegations as a mudslinging campaign.

Women empowerment

During her tenure as First Lady, Mama Salma was hailed for being at the forefront of empowering women. She founded the Wanawake na Maendeleo (Wama), a non-profit dealing with women empowerment. She also founded Wama Secondary School, an institution that enrols bright but disadvantaged girls.
