We in Kenya and East Africa have taken up our responsibilities in this global war against terrorism
Radicalisation of the youth is the pipeline for global terrorism & we must call attention to enablers of this process
Our deepening democracy, and our growing prosperity are anathema to terrorist and this makes us a target
The World must awaken to the speed with which terror groups can evolve & risks posed by terrorists when they return to their home countries
Half of the terrorists who massacred innocent shoppers at the Westgate Shopping Mall last year were foreigners
I addressed the @UN Security Council where I called for stronger efforts to control the phenomenon of foreign mercenaries waging terror.

We now know that our social and economic transformation shall come first from within our nations, our region and our continent.
These Dev't paradigms were driven by external prescriptions heavy on political instructions but light on economic & social transformation.
State weakness in Africa comes from a history of wrong development paradigms that heavily relied on development assistance.
Africa needs to focus on making States stronger with stable institutions so that they have the ability to serve and protect people.
We must commit to build resilient and accountable states that can effectively respond to shocks, adversities and emergencies in the future.
I called for building of stronger States in Africa that can withstand crises and respond to emergencies

Many African countries are already taking strong action to invest in renewable energy to address the power deficit on the continent.
I am happy to report that on Kenya’s grid today, we have over 70 percent renewable energy
The challenge moved from whether renewable energy can power modern lifestyles at a reasonable cost to how best to accelerate its deployment

My Government plans to raise health funding to 15 percent of the total budget from its current level.
Africa must mobilise domestic resources to fund our own solutions instead of moving from one crisis to another
Africa is rising economically but the fruits of this transformation will only be sweet if proper investments are channelled towards health.
I hosted a high-level meeting on Health Financing whose theme was ‘Domestic Financing for Health: Invest to Save’
Africa’s potential lies in trading with each other even as the content builds links with other parts of the world
The resource in our people’s potential is even more valuable than the resources Africa owns
Most of Africa gained independence over 5 decades ago yet a majority still look for aid when they live on the richest content in the world
I called on the people of Africa to liberate their thinking to harness the enormous resources on the continent.
