The Head of State said the fundamental freedoms in the Constitution should be enjoyed responsibly.

“We are ready and committed to partner with our friends to ensure harmony and cohesion among Kenyans. On behalf of the people of Kenya, l thank all the Iftar food donors,” he said.

President Kenyatta assured the donors that the food will go directly to the beneficiaries in Lamu, Mandera, Wajir and Moyale, among other needy counties.
