Uhuru opens 12th Parliament, warns against disruption of peace
President Uhuru Kenyatta has on Tuesday, September 12 issued a stern warning to the opposition National Super Alliance (NASA), saying that his government will not condone any activity that will disrupt the hard-earned peace and stability of the country in the name of politics.
Speaking during the inauguration of the 12th Parliament, President Kenyatta called upon politicians from across the political divide to engage in vibrant democratic competition that will transform the country and seize from destructive politics.
In a statement deemed as a veiled attack on NASA elected leaders who boycotted Parliament’s first session, Kenyatta remained adamant that the constitution dictates a President has powers until such a time when another is sworn-in.
“I want to assure every Kenyan and the world that every arm of government i.e. the Judiciary, parliament and executive is operational and government business is running as scheduled. So there is no lacuna in government,” said President Kenyatta.
Kenyatta lauded his administration for actualizing devolution further pledging his 110% support to the lawmakers as they embark on parliament business.
