The National Values and Principles of Governance espoused in Article 10 of the Constitution are patriotism, national unity, sharing and devolution of power, the rule of law, democracy and participation of the people; human dignity, equity, social justice, inclusiveness, equality, human rights, non discrimination and protection of the marginalized; good governance, integrity, transparency and accountability, and sustainable development.
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.
It is expected that inculcation of National Values and Principles of Governance in the department will create a positive influence on work ethics and productivity of the members of staff as well as making substantial improvement in the quality of leadership, management practices and utilization of national resources at all levels and sections within the department and the University at large.
I therefore appeal to all the members of the department to embrace this IEC material and promote National Values and Principles of Governance within the department and also help promote the University in meeting its commitment in the 2016/2017 performance contract on National Cohesion.
TRACISIO. M. THUITA
