On 12th, December, 2017 Kenyans from all walks of life will mark the 54th Anniversary of our Independence. Indeed, Jamhuri Day is a symbol of what we are - Kenyans. We salute the bravery, determination and absolute sacrifice of our freedom fighters. As we join other compatriots in celebrating this auspicious occasion, let this Day be a source of inspiration for greater cohesion and harmony among us.
This year, you have demonstrated that our diversity is a positive force that brings us together in consolidating our values as a people. I particularly salute your patriotism, commitment and cooperation in the formation of the Umbrella Association of the Kenya Diaspora in Italy. I look forward to our continued partnership with all Kenyans in our countries of accreditation.
As you are aware, the Embassy will not host this year's Jamhuri Day Celebrations. On behalf of the entire Embassy Staff, I wish to extend to you best wishes for a happy Jamhuri Day.
Merry Christmas and a Prosperous 2018 to you and your families.
