Uchumi, Kazi- 4 Main Key Agendas President Uhuru Kenyatta Talked In Parliament Buildings

President Uhuru Kenyatta addresses the nation on Tuesday afternoon in a joint sitting of parliament, many waiting to hear the government's plans to help save the economy following the effects of the Covid-19 disaster.

Before being addressed in parliament by the speakers, Mr Ken Lusaka (senate) and Mr Justin Muturi (national) and began delivering speeches, the head of state inspected the honorary parade, organized outside the parliamentary chamber by the Kenya Defense Forces (KDF).

Kenya was hit by the corona virus in early 2020, an international catastrophe that has affected various economies and sectors.

Some businesses have closed, with hundreds and thousands of people losing their jobs at a time when the cost of living is rising.

Prices of edible products, especially flour, sugar, cooking oil, rice, among others continue to be expensive.

Petroleum is also becoming increasingly expensive, a move that has contributed to inflation of goods involving the average citizen, and in President Kenyatta's address to the nation the people are eager to hear if he will reduce his taxes (VAT).

As the President's speech comes at a time when the nation and the world are concerned about the emergence of a new species and the threat of a corona from South Africa, it is unclear whether he will announce tightening rules and strategies of the Ministry of Health (MoH) to help prevent the spread.
