REMARKS BY CDA A.I JENIFFER K. NJIRU ON THE OCCASION OF CELEBRATION OF THE 57TH ANNIVERSARY OF KENYA’S
JAMHURI DAY 12TH DECEMBER, 2020 – TATA STADIUM, MINBURI
During Kenya’s 57th Independence Anniversary held on 12th December, 2020 in Minburi Stadium the Charge d’affaires a.i M.s. Jeniffer K. Njiru welcomed the guests to the event saying that it gave her great pleasure to be among the Kenyan community and other invited guests to celebrate the Jamhuri day. On behalf of the Government of Kenya, members of staff of the Embassy and her own behalf, she conveyed warm greetings and congratulations to the Kenyans as they celebrated the memorable day urging them to reflect over the journey Kenya has travelled in the last 57 years reiterating that Jamhuri day is the most significant day in Kenya’s national diary and such occasions are opportunities to share with friends the strides that Kenya has made since independence.
Ms. Njiru commended all Kenyans wherever they were in the globe and more so the Kenyans Thailand, Vietnam, Cambodia, Laos and Myanmar (The countries accredited to the Embassy in Thailand) for their role of building and promoting Kenya in their different and diverse ways calling them indeed the Ambassadors out there. She noted that the founders of the young nation of Kenya had visualized a flourishing state; a political democracy guided by the virtues of a representative government, in which the rule of law applies equally and requested all Kenyans wherever they were, to remain steadfast and support these ideals for a brighter future.
In her remarks the CDA a.i reflected on the diplomatic relations between Kenya and Thailand, and that the two countries enjoy excellent political, economic and cultural ties demonstrated by the spectacular Thai Fashion show held on 6th December, 2020 with the participation of 100 countries show casing their national costumes designed Thai students using the Thai silk. The Jamhuri day event was an extension of those relations in the field of sports diplomacy as Africa is renowned for its sporting activities, such as in athletics, Rugby, football among others. She further paid tribute to these warm relations that have grown both in depth and scope in the last 53 years of the Kenya Thailand Relations. The Kenyan government intends to take advantage of these excellent relations in order to further expand the cooperation both in the Bilateral and the multilateral spheres.
In the International scene, Kenya continues to take her obligations very seriously and we shall continue to play our rightful role in contributing to strengthening of institutions of multilateral dialogs and consensuses building as these are the surest path to providing solutions to a myriad of challenges facing humankind today.
Following its election to the United Nations Security Council as a non-Permanent member, Kenya presents a Ten Point Agenda which focuses on regional and global concerns that the country champions, namely: building bridges; peace keeping and support operations; regional peace and security; countering terrorism and prevention of extremism; women, peace and security; youth empowerment; humanitarian action; justice, human rights and democracy; environment and climate change; and, sustainable development goals. During its tenure in the UNSC, Kenya will pursue an approach that ensures the achievement of world peace, security and sustainable development.
The Government was undertaking institutional reforms under the Constitution. These Institutional reforms will enable it enhance integrity in government, entrench the rule of law and good governance whilst restoring confidence in public institutions. Kenyan leaders are also engaged in inclusive discussions on a better Kenya for all under The ‘building bridges’ agenda which resonates at the domestic level in deepening its democratic credentials while securing the peace during political transitions and elections. This agenda is particularly relevant today as the world needs multilateral consensus the global sphere, a good example is the COVID-19 pandemic and its adverse effects. President Uhuru Kenyatta has been at the forefront engaging world leaders and institutions in proffering solutions for concerted response measures.
The COVID-19 Pandemic has caused major disruption worldwide and affected all aspects of humanity. The extraordinary global economic, social, and health disruptions by the COVID-19 Pandemic, has not spared Kenya. It is commendable that Thailand has been successful in combating the pandemic and I would like to take this opportunity to applaud the government of Thailand for the notable achievement. Kenya is ready to learn the best practices from Thailand through the existing Universal Health Coverage MOU signed between the two countries in February 2019.
The COVID 19 pandemic began against the backdrop of a steady economic growth rate of 5.4% in 2019. Kenya’s Vision 2030 and its medium-term plan dubbed the Big Four Agenda had been bearing fruit. As result, most of the major economic sectors showed impressive growth last year; including manufacturing, agriculture, tourism, and financial services.
The Kenyan Government reforms are commitment to revitalizing the business landscape, have been acknowledged far and wide. Kenya is continuously enhancing the ease of doing business and creating an enabling environment for all our enterprises to thrive. Kenya’s 80-slot improvement since 2014, with our Nation currently ranking at 56th globally and ranking 3rd in Sub-Saharan Africa on the Ease of Doing Business Global Ranking Report, from a low of 136th globally in 2014.
As the CDA concluded her remarks she commended athe Kenyan community for the positive role they continue to play in promoting friendly and mutually beneficial relations between Kenya and Thailand and the countries in the region: – students and teachers, business people and international civil servants, as well as their families for their continued support to the Kenya Embassy in Bangkok.
She thanked all those who made the celebration possible, especially the TATA stadium use of the special facility, The Diaspora Committee and the colleagues at the Kenya Embassy who worked around the clock to ensure the success of the event. Of course not forgetting to laud the football teams who have from time to time displayed their prowess in that very stadium. The Jamhuri day football tournament was one of those times and welcomed the gusts to a good game and has a good time.
Finally the CDA a.i requested everyone to join her in a toast to the good health of His Majesty King Maha Vajiralongkorn Bodindradebayavarangkun, His Excellency Uhuru Kenyatta, and President of the Republic of Kenya and to the prosperity of the people of Thailand and Kenya and to the continued good relations between the two countries. Ms. Njiru further wished the guests a merry Christmas and a happy and a prosperous new year 2021 and reminded them to please follow the laid down Covid-19 protocols and Keep safe.
The event was very colorful, with many activities as follows: face painting for the children, music and dance, Kenyan culinary art; Bonding games; friendly Football matches – Kenya vs. Uganda; Nigeria vs. Guinea; Guinea vs. Kenya Uganda vs. Nigeria Uganda vs. Guinea 4:30pm –Kenya vs. Nigeria with trophies and awards being given to the winning teams.
The Kenyan Diaspora also conducted their elections which were followed by a handing over ceremony to the new committee. The CDA a.i presided over the award ceremony noting that everyone was a winner. She congratulated the winners in the tournaments and the new officials of the Diaspora Committee reiterating the Embassies’ support as they carried out their new roles and responsibilities.

PRESS STATEMENT ON THE UNITED NATIONS SECURITY COUNCIL ELECTIONS
On behalf of the Government of the Republic of Kenya, I once again convey deepest gratitude to the Member States of the United Nations Organization for electing the Republic of Kenya to a non-permanent seat on the United Nations Security Council for the period 2021-2022.
I also wish to record my warmest appreciation to the people of Kenya for their unwavering support. Kenya’s deep gratitude is enhanced because its robust endorsement by Africa- (the African Union), ensured its election success.
Kenya’s emphatic endorsement in 2019 by the East African Community, began the journey with the brotherly nations of the Republics of Uganda, Tanzania, Burundi, Rwanda, South Sudan. Kenya secured its support from ALL corners of the continent, from Eastern Africa, North Africa, from West Africa, from Central Africa and from Southern Africa
Indeed, during the Virtual Reception marking the end of the campaign, on 16th June 2020, graced by His Excellency the President, he personally commended the Ambassadors from these countries and requested them to convey his personal thanks to his Brother Colleagues, Their Excellencies, in the region and beyond for believing in and entrusting Kenya with this solemn responsibility.
The support from Africa has been clear, consistent, resolute and unwavering. Kenya again formally expresses its deepest gratitude to Africa. Kenya shall partner with members of the Security Council, as one of the three African members of the United Nations Security Council.
Kenya’s election required support from ALL of the United Nations: from the Pacific, from the Caribbean, from Asia, from all the Americas, from Europe and from the Middle East. We take this early opportunity to convey to all of them our warm appreciation and deep gratitude.
Kenya remains a safe pair of hands. I reaffirm Kenya’s firm commitment to a rules-based ethos, buttressed by robust multilateralism, secured by the United Nations Charter and International Law. Kenya anticipates continued support to ensure global peace and security for sustainable development and shared prosperity.
