Today's talk will be closely watched, with Kenyans eager to hear what the president will emphasize as his second term comes to an end.
Even though Kenya's positive rate has dropped to less than 1%, he is likely to prioritize the global Covid-19 pandemic, particularly mitigation steps against the Omicron strain of the disease.
He is also scheduled to speak about the 2022 General Elections, political tensions, and the country's deteriorating economy, particularly the country's mounting debt.
According to the Central Bank of Kenya, the country's external debt was Sh4 trillion as of June 2021, while its internal debt was Sh3.7 trillion.
The president is also expected to speak about security, the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI), corruption, famine, and drought.
Kenyans also anticipate Uhuru speaking about the high cost of food and other goods.
Kenyans expected food prices, including as milk and sugar, to remain stable after President Uhuru Kenyatta removed the statewide curfew and implemented many other Covid-19 control measures in October.
Here is the video to watch President Uhuru arriving at Parliament Buildings.
