, NAIROBI, June 28 – Vice President Kalonzo Musyoka has urged Kenyans to zealously safeguard the existing peace and promote national cohesion in order to foster development.

Speaking on Saturday, Musyoka assured that the Grand Coalition government will continue to improve service delivery to all Kenyans as well as put up measures to alleviate poverty.

The Vice President was accompanied by 30 Members of Parliament including two Cabinet Ministers Yusuf Haji of Defence and Beth Mugo of Public Health and Sanitation and several Assistant Ministers.

Musyoka said despite the formation of a Grand Coalition government Kenya still upholds multiparty democracy where principals of individual political parties remained respected.

Musyoka urged leaders in Ukambani to unite so as to offer efficient service delivery as well as resolve the many problems affecting Wananchi in the region.

He asked parents to take advantage of the free primary and secondary education to enroll their children in school.

The Vice President said Kenya is a respected country across the world and urged Wananchi to be a good example for developing democracies in the world to emulate.

Musyoka thanked people in the area for their votes during the last General Elections and promised to work together with leaders in the region for the sake of development.
