    Uhuru wished the chikdren a Merry Christmas and happy festivities as they break to celebrate the holidays. 

    He also urged the country to continue adhering to the laid out Covid-19 protocols to curb the spread of the pandemic. 

    In November 2021, the President treated State House Staff to yet another party to celebrate their achievement in emerging as the second-best performing State Department.

    The party was also held to bid goodbye to 41 State House employees who were retiring from the public service.

    "State House being the place where the President resides, I think you have done the country proud. If the place where His Excellency is residing is doing well then you are sure he will be able to deliver on his mandate," Cabinet Secretary Ministry of Public Service, Gender Margaret Kobia stated. 

    “Retirement is another phase and state of mind. If you say you are tired and old that will happen but if you say this is another opportunity then you will definitely excel in life, if you continue in line with your passion and skills which you acquired over the years,” she added.

    Also in attendance at the party were Public Service PS Mary Kimonye, State House Chief of Staff, Nzioka Waita, and Chief of Staff in the Office of the First Lady, Constance Gikonyo, State House Deputy Chief of Staff in charge of Policy and Strategy, Ruth Kagia, the President's SME Advisor, Anne Mutahi, and State House Spokesperson, Kanze Dena Mararo.
