, NAIROBI, Kenya, Dec 4 – President Uhuru Kenyatta will on Tuesday embark on tour of the Lower Eastern region where he will launch a number of development projects as well as drum up support for his Jubilee Party.
State House Spokesman Manoah Esipisu said roads to be launched in Ukambani include the Kibwezi – Mutomo- Usweini connecting to Tsekuru which is Wiper Leader Kalonzo Musyoka’s backyard.
“The government committed itself to delivering its projects and that it is just meeting those commitments, anything this administration has said it will do, it has made every effort to do,” he said at the weekly media briefing.
The president will also inspect other developmental projects in the area seen as critical in his 2017 re-election bid.
“Other road projects in the area that are now underway include the Machakos Kenol Ngoleni , Kaani Mututini – Kaseve road, Mombasa Road – Daystar – Lukenya Road Machoko – Lukenya Kenani Athi River Road,” he noted.
Last week, President Kenyatta toured Central Kenya alongside his Deputy William Ruto where he launched and inspected several development projects.
The president visited the counties of Nyeri, Laikipia, Kirinyaga and Murang’a over a whirlwind 48-hour period ending on Tuesday.
During his visit, President Kenyatta assured aspirants that the Jubilee Party will not impose any candidate during party primaries while assuring that the nominations will be free and fair.
The Head of State also took issue with former Prime Minister and CORD leader Raila Odinga whom he accused of criticising every development project initiated by the government with the aim of transforming lives of the people.
But the CORD leader insists the Jubilee administration has little to show since taking over power in 2013.
