The court of arms is arguably a common and important national symbol that you will find in most if not all government offices. It bears some unique features, a representation of the rich history and culture that defines us as Kenya.
One Charles Koinange Mangua now wants the word Harambee which means pulling together in unity, inscribed on the court of arms to be replaced with the word Kenya, after a revelation from God, in a petition filed in the Nationa Assembly.
He claimed that the continued use pf then word Harambee had annoyed God who will unleash his wrath upon Kenya if the parliament does not urgently review the word Harambee on the Court of Arms.
“I shall not be held responsible for the lives of the people Kenya by God concerning that matter of the word appearing on the Coat of Arms. You shall all be held responsible collectively and individually before God concerning the matter of the word on the Coat of Arms, which should be reading the name ‘Kenya’,” read the petition by Mangua.
“He (God) is the one who commanded that the Coat of Arms should read ‘Kenya’,” he said.
Justice and Legal Affairs Committee, chaired by Baringo North MP William Cheptumo was directed by House Speaker Justin Muturi to consider the petition and report to the House within the mandatory 60 days.
