PREFACE

    It gives me great pleasure to launch the 2015 Annual President’s Report on the measures taken and progress achieved in the realisation of
National Values and Principles of Governance. Article 4(2) of the Constitution provides that the Republic of Kenya shall be a multi-party democratic
state founded on the National Values and Principles of Governance referred to in Article 10. National Values exert influence on the way individuals
relate with each other, how communities engage with one another, and how citizens and governmentstructures interact, hence defining a people’s
identity. National Values therefore impact on the pace and direction of national growth and development.

    This Report is pursuant to Article 132(1)(c)(i) that requires the President to report annually on all the measures taken and the progress achieved in
the realization of the National Values and Principles of Governance, referred to in Article 10.

    The National Values and Principles of Governance as enshrined in Article 10(1) bind all State organs, State officers, public officers and all
persons whenever any of them: applies or interprets the Constitution; enacts, applies or interprets any law; or makes, or implements public policy
decisions. Further, Article 10(2) of the Constitution highlights the National Values and Principles of Governance, which include: (a) patriotism,
national unity, sharing and devolution of power, the rule of law, democracy and participation of the people; (4) human dignity, equity, social justice,
inclusiveness, equality, human rights, non-discrimination and protection of the marginalized; (c) good governance, integrity, transparency and
accountability; and (d@) sustainable development.

   The objective of this Report is to assess the extent to which public institutions implemented the National Values and Principles of Governance
during the year under review. The Report further highlights Government commitments and the way forward in the realisation of the National Values
and Principles of Governance.
