President Uhuru Kenyatta is currently making his annual State of the Nation address to Parliament, the first since his re-election in two rounds of elections last year.
The president is legally required to address a joint sitting of the Senate and the National Assembly at least once a year and has used the event in the past to make momentous announcements.
President Kenyatta: The trust that the people have bestowed on us is sacred. The Constitution that brings us here for this address is actually a guide to help us create a healthier and more united country. Our constitutional order is secure. Devolution is no longer a baby, but is mature and thriving.
President Kenyatta: We are today above the 15 percent threshold for the allocation of resources to counties.
President Kenyatta: I recently signed the County Revenue Allocation Bill giving Sh372bn for counties in the next financial year 2018/2019.
President Kenyatta: Kenya is a country of god-fearing and generous people.
President Kenyatta: Most of Kenyans are honest to a fault and intolerant of graft. The Kenyan people are ahead of us, their leaders. Leaders at every level of government must demonstrate a desire to serve and maintain the highest level of integrity.
President Kenyatta: Last year, we recovered Sh500m acquired fraudulently. The government must report fraud. Teachers must teach students on the value of honesty.
President Kenyatta: All of us are in agreement that Kenyans want a lower cost of living, affordable food, and broad and inclusive growth.
President Kenyatta: I have launched the second phase of the SGR line. Last year, we completed the most ambitious project in Kenya's history.
President Kenyatta: After devolution conference of last week, county governments are keen to work with the national government to improve immunisation rates.
President Kenyatta: Cash was transferred to vulnerable households, giving them the choice of how to spend their stipends.
President Kenyatta: A decent roof over one's head is the most tangible symbol of a decent life. We have designed a new housing programme that will incorporate the private sector.
President Kenyatta: My dream is that every Kenyan will have the capacity to own a decent home. This dream is going to become a reality if we join our hands to incentivise, especially, the private sector.
President Kenyatta: We cannot rest for the threat is ever present and all Kenyans must constantly be alert.
