Kenya: President Uhuru Kenyatta says views of Western countries will not distract his Government from discharging its duties.

Speaking after it emerged US President Barrack Obama would skip the country in his tour of Africa, President Uhuru said his immediate concern was to fulfil pledges he made to Kenyans.

“Our main concern is to work hard and uplift the economy. We are going to work so well until our foreign detractors are amazed,” he said.

While reiterating his earlier stand on MPs’ salaries, Uhuru urged Kenyans to tell MPs to their faces the move is ill-timed.

“Kenyans need to approach leaders and tell them this is not the time to ask for higher pay. Let them work first then the rest will follow,” he said yesterday at a rally in Nyeri.

Uhuru said the Jubilee government had no reason to fail. He addressed roadside rallies in Nyeri, Kirinyaga, Murang’a, Kiambu, Karatina, Sagana, Makutano, Kennol and Ruiru. “When we were fighting for leadership positions, our aim was not just to assume power but to work for the betterment of the country,” he said.
