Statehouse spokesperson Kanze Dena has thanked President Uhuru Kenyatta for helping her write history.
Speaking on Sunday, July 24, Kanze thanked President Kenyatta for making her the first female spokesperson in the country.
"Thank you very much sir for making me the first spokesperson who was female. Thank you for helping me write history, I don't take it for granted," she stated.
Kanze was speaking during a special thanksgiving prayer and worship service to mark President Uhuru Kenyatta and First Lady Margaret's successful 10-year tenure.
She thanked the Head of State for enabling her and the Presidential Strategic Communication Unit (PSCU) team to carry out their mandate during his tenure.
"We just want to ask that the Lord will bless, keep and strengthen you, enlargen your territory but above all together with your family, no pestilence will come before you. We will miss you, you will miss us but we will miss you more as your staff and we will miss you the most as the President of Kenya," the State House spokesperson said.
On his part, President Kenyatta urged those who will remain at State House to support the incoming administration and serve with zeal so as to keep propelling the nation to greater heights in development.
“The Government, the country cannot stop. It will move on. We took the mantle from others and we shall pass it on to others because the country must move forward.
“Just like the way we found many of you here, we shall leave many of you here. Mine is to request you to accord the same cooperation to the new administration. Help them to achieve more milestones so that our country can move forward,” the President said.
