President Uhuru Kenyatta last evening launched a seminal report detailing Kenya’s progress towards entrenching equality.
The report titled “Leave no one behind. Peace and Conflict Analysis: Through the eyes of those at risk of being left behind” was prepared by the United Nations office in Kenya in partnership with the Government of Kenya.
Speaking at State House, Nairobi, during the virtual launch of the report, President Kenyatta said Kenya has made significant steps towards entrenching equality through the adoption of the Constitution of Kenya 2010.
