President-elect Uhuru Kenyatta yesterday took Kenyans by surprise when he took a stroll in the streets of Nairobi.
The Jubilee leader, who has consistently continued to debunk the presidency with his humble gestures, took the short walk from his office in Harambee House to the National Treasury.
At the National Treasury, the Head of State met with members of his economic team and partners, African Development Bank (AfDB), to discuss Kenya’s economic transformation.
The meeting was attended by National Treasury Cabinet Secretary Henry Rotich, Principal Secretary Dr Kamau Thugge, Senior Adviser on social sectors Ruth Kagia, and Deputy Chief of Staff Nzioka Waita. African Development Bank (AfDB) Director General Gabriel Negatu also attended the meeting.
The team presented options on accelerating economic transformation, especially focusing on programmes that can make Kenya globally competitive, while directly positively impacting ordinary Kenyans.
“The primary goal has to be to lift the lives of ordinary Kenyans,” President Kenyatta told the group.
The briefing is the latest in a series of meetings assessing where Kenya is in implementing measures and projects to transform the country.
The President has already been briefed on the energy and water sectors.
Before the meeting, the President, during his walk in the Capital, interacted and shook hands with some excited Kenyans.
