What Uhuru Said At St. Andrew's Cathedral Thika.

President Uhuru Muigai Kenyatta has once again assured Kenyans that the nation's financial systems were stable, solid and dependable and there was no reason whatsoever for anyone to panic.

Speaking at the Anglican Church of Kenya (ACK)'s St. Andrew's Cathedral in Thika, Uhuru told Kenyans that their money was well protected.

"Our banking system is very firm. I fully support the CBK governor in his quest to rid off the rot in the banking sector. His actions are meant to safeguard depositors and protect their interests and welfare," said the president.

He called on all leaders to check accountability, warning those who had the habit of dipping their hands into other people's money that their days were numbered. 

"These thieves must pay back what they have stolen from the people," he said.

He praised the ACK Thika Diocese for their visionary strategic plan saying that God's work not only entailed saving souls, but also empowering the believers too.

He felt privileged to have chosen Thika as his first platform to speak publicly about the ICC cases after the acquittal of his deputy William Ruto and journalist Joshua Sang.

"I am very happy that I am celebrating their freedom here with you. I thank God and the millions of Kenyans who stood by us in prayers. Your prayers have seen us through," said Uhuru.

To the opposition chiefs, the president had this to say, "Heshima si utumwa. We may differ in ideology but that does not need to breed hatred. What remains now is to unite as Kenyans, stop tribal divisions and hatred and grow one Kenya. Kenya needs us all."

He told them that they as individual may differ politically, we were all children of one mother, Kenya and we should place the interests of the nation before individual interests.

Those who accompanied the president included Cabinet Secretary Ministry of Water and Irrigation Eugene Ludovic Wamalwa, Nominated Senator and Senate Chief Whip Beatrice Elachi, Governor William Kabogo, Senators Kimani Wamatangi and Kembi Gitura, Kiambu Women Rep. Ann Gathecha, MPs Alice Ng'ang'a (Thika), Ferdinand Waititu (Kabete), Esther Gathogo (Ruiru), Kigo Njenga (Gatundu North) and Muriithi Waiganjo (Ol-Jororok)
