Madaraka Day

Madaraka ya heri.

Congratulations to Kenya on its 51st anniversary of self-rule.  It is important to take time each year to remember the heroic sacrifices of countless Kenyans to attain the nation’s freedom.  The courageous actions of those men and women resonate to this day.  As Kenyans continue to build their great country, they honor the efforts of their forebears and carry on their tradition.

The United States and Kenya have been partners for 50 years.  We look forward to continuing to deepen our friendship in the years ahead as we work side-by-side to forge an ever better future.  Again, congratulations to all Kenyans on this important day.

Kuwa na siku njema ya Madaraka.
