President Kenyatta – who is the current chairman of the East African Community and the Rapporteur of the Intergovernmental Authority on Development (IGAD) – has continuously affirmed Kenya’s commitment to a speedy resolution to the South Sudan conflict.
Last Saturday, the President met Gen. Lazarus Sumbeiywo and Amb. Seyoum Mesfin of Ethiopia, who briefed him on the status of the South Sudan peace negotiations.
The President said there are groups abroad that fund and nurture outfits whose aim is to create cleavages between Kenyans and spread a negative image of the country.
“These actors have positioned themselves as the gatekeepers and interpreters of Kenya in various capitals. If they were to succeed, they would so completely rob us of faith in each other that we would put our destiny in the hands of unelected, unaccountable institutions that answer elsewhere,” said the President.
The President made the remarks as he called on Kenyans to remain vigilant and guard their sovereignty against all those who wish to undermine the nation.
