A section of Muslim leaders has commended President Uhuru Kenyatta for working tirelessly to bring Kenyans together in the last nine years that he has been in power.
The leaders spoke at an event hosted at State House, Nairobi, by President Uhuru Kenyatta on Thursday evening. A statement issued by the State House indicates that at least 2000 leaders allied to Islam religion graced the occasion.
Among them were Tourism CS Najib Balala, Sports CS Amina Mohamed, Mombasa Governor Ali Hassan Joho, National Chairman of the Supreme Council of Kenya Muslims (SUPKEM) Hassan Ole Naado, Sheikh Khalifa and Sheikh Abdullahi Abdi
According to Tourism Cabinet Secretary Najib Balala, President Kenyatta will go into history books as one of the greatest leaders who worked extremely hard to unite all Kenyans
Mr Balala said under President Kenyatta’s leadership, the Muslim community had been brought to the centre of Kenya’s development agenda thereby enabling them to play their role in nation building.
“It is only in your government that we Muslim leaders and we who work under you know what you mean for this country. You have built infrastructure even from where you did not get votes. You built communities and bridges where there were no bridges to build. You brought people together,” the Tourism CS said.
They assured the President of their continued support saying their immediate focus was helping the Head of State to cement his legacy of progressive and peaceful Kenya.
