We look forward to having a great day, it will be my last Madaraka as President and I want to take this opportunity to thank each and every one of you, we have worked well with you. It has been both a pleasure and honour to have you with us.”

Interior cabinet secretary Fred Matiang’i said President Uhuru Kenyatta kept his promise to Kenyans considering many achievements especially during his second term. Matiang’i said

”Quite frankly the president has more than kept his promise, he has over-performed, because when you look at the jubilee manifesto of 2013 and now, it is shocking, the president has over performed and over kept the promise”
