The Kenyatta family will no longer have public memorials to celebrate the life and times of Kenya’s founding father, Mzee Jomo Kenyatta.
During the 41st memorial service held at All Saints Cathedral, President Uhuru Kenyatta who spoke on behalf of the first family said that this was the last service.
From now on, the head of state said, Kenyans will commemorate the late president in their own way.
“After consulting with the Kenyatta family, we have decided that this will be the last memorial service. From now on, we can all remember him in our own way,” President Uhuru said.
He remembered his father as a man who gave his life to the service of this nation.
“We are not just here to remember the man; we are also here to remember what he stood for and what he gave his life for.
Leadership is not about where you are from but a desire to serve and make a difference,” he said.
