He further urged them to “reflect on the year that was and plan for a bigger and better 2020” as well as to “remember those who do not have as much as we do” and to “drive safely.”
On behalf of my family I would like to wish all Kenyans a Merry Christmas and a happy and peaceful festive period.
This is the season to spend time with loved ones and reconnect with the beauty of our country as we travel back and forth across the country.
