    "Under his leadership, we have seen the country host many international events in the world. We are the only African country that hosts a continental tour. For me, the highlight of his legacy is the Nairobi Expressway.

    "The last nine and a half years have been out of this world. I couldn't have asked for anything better," stated CS Amina.

    Her Foreign Affairs counterpart, Raychell Omamo, expressed her gratitude to Uhuru stating that the appointment of over six women leaders was a testament to his policies of women leadership.

    "It has been very exciting, life-changing, and inspiring it has been a delight to serve under him. President Kenyatta gave us the women the heavy dockets. He inspires us every day to reach higher beyond our boundaries. It has been a delight to serve under him," she stated.

    On his part, Interior CS Fred Matiang'i stated that the Uhuru will be remembered for his reforms in the National Police Service (NPS) citing the improvement of infrastructure within the force.

    "Now all the county and deputy county commissioners have cars to move around. In 2013 these are things you could not talk about. Most of the time they did not have fuel and that is a bygone," he stated.

    During the address, other officials of the State House also took the opportunity to pay tribute to President Kenyatta even as he exits office in the coming months.

    "The President has been a very humble leader and a team leader. Through him, I have really learnt a lot about how to handle the public. His leadership style is that which creates an enabling environment," State House Comptroller, Kinuthia Mbugua, stated.
