President Uhuru Kenyatta on Wednesday, August 31 took time to walk on the streets of Mombasa.

In a video circulating online, Uhuru, who was accompanied by Mombasa Governor-elect Abdulswamad Nassir and a host of Azimio la Umoja leaders was seen walking and greeting members of the public.

A visibly happy Uhuru mingled freely with members of the public with his aide-de-camp behind him without a military uniform as has been the norm.

This is the first time the President is being seen in public since the August 9 general election.

Uhuru meets religious leaders

On August 18, he met and held talks with religious leaders at State House, Nairobi who paid him a courtesy call.

The interfaith group, including Archbishop Martin Kivuva of Mombasa Catholic Archdiocese, Archbishop Antony Muheria of Nyeri, Anglican Archbishop Jackson Ole Sapit, and the Deputy Secretary General of the Supreme Council of Kenya Muslims (SUPKEM) Hassan Ole Naado, commended President Kenyatta for his leadership which has ensured peace, stability, and cohesion amongst the Kenyan communities.

The religious leaders expressed gratitude to the Head of State for working towards a united Kenya by creating a path of inclusivity for all Kenyans.

Other members of the clergy who attended the meeting included Sheikh Yusuf Nasur Maki, Nairobi Catholic Archdiocese, Archbishop Philip Anyolo, Bishop Emeritus David Oginde, Bishop Emeritus Silas Yego, Bishop Robert Langat, Canon Chris Kinyanjui, and Father Ferdinard Lugonzo.

The President thanked the religious leaders for their support and assured them that the process of transition will be smooth.
