Today, Tuesday 30th, president Uhuru Kenyatta gave the annual State of the Nation address at the parliament buildings as required by the law. The Constitution of Kenya dictates that the president must give this address once a year.
As usual, the Head of State highlighted the achievements of his government for the 8 years he has been in office. Among the the things he mentioned was the improved infrastructure, health care, education among other things.
President Uhuru also touched on the prevailing circumstances that have affected the normal livelihoods of ordinary Kenyans. He talked about COVID-19 pandemic, the current economic situation and the Kenya-Somalia maritime boarder row.
At some point, in the middle of his address, his long speech seemed to cause impatience to some lawmakers which by that time had taken almost 2 hours with no signs of concluding.
The president noticed this and went on to claim that he was also getting tired of reading the long speech. The commander in chief hilariously said that he was even skipping some pages in order to finish quickly.
The impatience legislators broke into a laughter making the president to pause his address for some few minutes. The president then proceeded to give the rest of the address.
