President Kibaki reassures of a peaceful transfer of power
Posted on Thursday, March 28, 2013 @ 17:44:06 CDT by kwpnews


President Mwai Kibaki presents the new Service Coat of Arms to the Director-General, National Intelligence Service (NIS), Maj. Gen. Michael Gichangi during the official farewell luncheon at NIS School of Analysis in Kitisuru, Nairobi.

NAIROBI (KWP) -The National Intelligence Service (NIS) today hosted President Mwai Kibaki to an official farewell luncheon at their new School of Analysis in Kitisuru, Nairobi County.

Speaking during the luncheon, President Kibaki who is retiring after the swearing in of the next Head of State, reaffirmed his full commitment to a peaceful transfer of power to the next Government.

The President called upon all Kenyans to play their respective roles in restoring normalcy in the country’s economic sectors as soon as possible, even as the Supreme Court ruling on the Presidential Election Petitions is awaited.

The Head of State said, “As the country awaits the Supreme Court ruling on the Presidential Election Petitions, which is due in the next few days, I call upon all of us to accept the ruling and maintain peace.”

At the same time, President Kibaki urged the country’s young people who are active users of various social media to utilize such forums to spread peace and unity.

Emphasizing that the future of the country belongs to present and future generations, the President said it was the responsibility of all Kenyans to ensure that their attitudes, words and actions of today build blocks to a prosperous and united Kenya in the years to come.

He commended the National Intelligence Service and other security organs in the country for their contribution towards a peaceful General Election and for enabling Kenyans exercise their democratic rights freely.

“I also wish to commend all Kenyans for maintaining peace before, during and after the elections,” the President added.

The Head of State, who presented the Service with its new Emblem, signifying the evolution and transformation of the country’s intelligence structures to meet national security challenges, commended NIS for setting up a state-of-the-art School of Analysis.

President Kibaki noted that the National Intelligence Service has drastically improved its operations, revamped its training programmes and invested in world-class technology in the last ten years.

The Government, the President said, has ensured that the Service is adequately funded and legal framework governing its operations strengthened.

The Head of State observed that the National Intelligence Service Act enacted last year in addition to legislation such as the Prevention of Terrorism Act, Money Laundering Act and Organized Crimes Act have increased the capacity of the Service to deal with emerging threats.

He exuded confidence that the National Intelligence Service will diligently serve and support the incoming administration in its efforts to maintain national security and stability.

President Kibaki cited one of the hallmarks of intelligence service as that of carrying out its mandate overtly or covertly making it is easy for a nation to forget the important role played in securing the country’s borders and preventing numerous criminal acts.

He commended the management and staff of the National Intelligence Service for overcoming threatening obstacles in the course of its duties to work hard and remain dedicated to duty.

“In this regard, I extend the gratitude of my Government for your selfless service. I, therefore, stand here today to tell you that your work and contribution to the development of our nation is deeply appreciated. Asanteni Sana,” the President said.

The Head of State specifically acknowledged the tremendous support the intelligence community offered to his Government by providing accurate and timely information regarding national affairs over the last ten years.

President Kibaki, who officially opened the Administration block for NIS school of Analysis Kitisuru, once more thanked the National Intelligence Service for hosting the farewell luncheon.

Speaking during the occasion, the out-going Minister of State for Provincial Administration and Internal Security Katoo Ole Metito commended NIS for prudently using funds allocated by the treasury.

The outgoing minister said due to proper utilization of allocated resources, NIS has never been adversely mentioned in the misuse of public funds.

Additionally, Mr. ole Metito reassured Kenyans that their security is guaranteed at all times adding that the just concluded General election is a clear testimony of government’s commitment to peace and harmony in the country.

Other speakers included the Director General of NIS major General Michael Gichangi.

In attendance were out-going Ministers Njeru Githae and Prof. Sam Ongeri, Head of Public Service and Secretary to the Cabinet Mr. Francis Kimemia, Chief of Defense Forces Gen. Julius Karangi and the Inspector General of police David kimaiyo among other senior Government officials.
