President Uhuru Kenyatta Remarks During His Meeting with Kenyans in Washington DC 8 6 2014

Good People,

I am impressed with President Uhuru's speech meeting with Kenyans on 6th Aug. 2014 in Washington at African Leadership Summit in the USA.  I must admit that I am swept with glow how Uhuru was able to connect with reality and demands of the Diasporas at the African Leadership Summit visit to USA.  This greatly out-shined all rumors that took toll prior to the visit where he demonstrated excellency proving success of the Summit as opposed to negative critics of the Same which had earlier took media platform by storm trans-continentally.  Throughout his speech, President Uhuru remained focused and referenced the Summit as a unique opportunity to tell a good story about Africa.  He agreed that Africa is a Continent facing a lot of challenges but it is upon Africans themselves to turn those challenges into great advantage with good opportunities; and quipped that “as the world Ages, Africa remain young and beautiful still attracting more love suitors”.  President Uhuru appreciated and honored his host President Obama with good words for inviting the first ever African Leadership Summit to USA. It remains how things should be done differently to bring better prospects.  Although I left early to catch up with other commitments, Put all-else aside and Give Credit where Credit is due, I must admit I missed a wonderful speech. Finally, I have come to realize that the speech was very lovely, inspiring and attractive, and I think it was upt to compensate for the lost time turning up late.
Consequently, I am glad that President Uhuru was able to admit from his very own observation, interaction with American Leadership together with Corporate American Business community that, he was able to notice 1st time in history, "Africa has been heard" and this gives me joy.  Nothing feels good than hearing positive talks that unites people to enjoy sharing progressive discussion that accommodates collective interests meant for mutually common good of all.  If you are dancing on the dancing floor with such a man, surely, your feet will definitely find itself floating with the current of the music because it feels morally good and definately fitting...........what else than to be full of praise and appreciation...............
Good People, to say the truth, President Uhuru has excited many people with his good inspiring talks. He has put himself on a testing weighing scale to deliver to Diasporas.  Time is of essence, we must take him for his words.  Let us all join together and try him by engaging him positively to see the fruits and prove his sweetness. It is now time to get down to business for Africa Renaissance moving forward.
I missed the fact that he did not travel with the First Lady Mrs. Margaret Kenyatta, but I hope in his next visit he will not leave her behind or maybe, let her travel soon to USA to fill the void, and in the next invitation hopefully to meet with remarkable cosmopolitan women's social networking connection, we will have time and opportunity to enjoy her as well.

President Uhuru Kenyatta took a swipe at Cord leader Raila Odinga during his US tour, saying he should wait for the 2017 elections.
Speaking in Dallas, Texas, where he met Kenyans after the recently concluded US-Africa summit, the President said there were more important issues facing the country and a referendum is not one one of them. (READ: The referendum fever).
Mimi sina haja na kura. Mambo yake ya Cord angojee 2017 tutamenyana huko (I do not need votes. His issues can wait until 2017 when we will battle it out),” Mr Kenyatta said.
Mr Odinga recently said the Jubilee government should prepare for a tough battle at the proposed Cord referendum.
President Kenyatta has, however, dismissed the push as a waste of taxpayers’ money and an “unnecessary venture”. (READ: Referendum push a waste of funds, Uhuru)
“Just one and a half years after we have started implementing these provisions some people are asking for a referendum. Are we going to have a referendum every one year?” asked the President.
He also reiterated his call for Kenyans to use social media wisely and not wage political wars. (READ: Stop hate speech on social media, Uhuru tells Kenyans)
The President also revealed details of talks with MoneyGram CEO Pamela H. Patsley on ways to enable Kenyans abroad to send money back home using mobile phones.
“You want to be able to send money to your relatives easily. We are working on that,” he said.
His speech, full of humour and anecdotes, left the crowd in laughter as he bade them goodbye saying:
“Unfortunately, I cannot stay for very long as I do not want to return home and be told 'baba while you were away'.”
