EASTER MESSAGE OF GOODWILL AND BEST WISHES TO KENYANS BY H.E. UHURU KENYATTA, C.G.H., PRESIDENT AND COMMANDER–IN–CHIEF OF THE DEFENCE FORCES OF THE REPUBLIC OF KENYA, STATE HOUSE, NAIROBI
These last few days have been a very special period for us. During this holy week, and continuing to EasterSunday, many of us have remembered the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ.
Now more than ever, the core of Easter matters to every Kenyan. I am inspired and humbled by the story of hope at the heart of these celebrations – hope that our world will be made whole again, hope that injustices will be overcome; and hope that the good and the right will triumph in the end.
These values are not confined to Christianity, for no honourable person denies them. And for people of all faiths, the message is also meaningful. At this time, Easter reminds us that goodwill triumphs, whatever the odds. We can be sure that peace among brothers and sisters will follow us.
For all Kenyans travelling to be with their loved ones, be careful on our roads. Obey the law. Don’t drink and drive.
As well, during this period and later, remember that security is our shared concern. Keep safe. Be concerned about your surroundings and neighbours. Keep at heart the spirit of community policing.
Let me assure you of my personal wishes.
May your Easter bring you all the peace and joy.
Uhuru Kenyatta, C.G.H.,
President of the Republic of Kenya
