President Uhuru Kenyatta has finally emerged to be seen by the public after a weekend long of Kenyans raising concerns over his whereabouts.
Images of the Head of State signing several bills have been shared online by State House on Monday.
State House captioned the pictures with, “President Uhuru Kenyatta has today at State House, Nairobi signed into law the Health Laws (Amendment) Bill of 2018 and the Assumption of the Office of County Governor Bill.
“The new health law amends the Pharmacy and Poisons Act (Cap 244), the Medical Practitioners and Dentists Act (Cap 244), the Nurses Act (Cap 257), and the Kenya Medical Training College Act (Cap 261).
“Others include the Nutritionists and Dieticians Act, the Kenya Medical Supplies Authority Act, the Counselors and Psychologists Act, the Physiotherapists Act, the Health Records and Information Managers Act and the Clinical Officers (Training, Registration and Licensing) Act,” they concluded.

These followed an explanation by State House spokesperson Kanze Dena who had earlier on informed Kenyans that the President was busy in his office working on “several things.”
During a morning interview at Radio Maisha, Kanze noted that the President is within the country and that he is focusing on working on several things in his office.
She exclaimed: “I am shocked that people say they haven’t seen the President since he left China, yet on 3rd of this month he had a meeting with executives from Global Fund and there was a Statement about it.
“The President is around, it doesn’t mean that because he is not seen in public he is not there, he has an office where he goes every day and he is working on several things,” she added during the interview.
