, NAIROBI, Kenya, June 2 – President Uhuru Kenyatta is set to tour Nyandarua and Nakuru Counties from Friday as part of Jubilee campaigns for his re-election in the August elections.
The visit comes a day after the Madaraka Day celebrations held in Nyeri, the heartland of the struggle against colonial rule where he highlighted his government’s achievements since taking over power.
In Nyandarua County, his tour will take him through OlKalau, Gilgil, Subukia and Bahati.
He is expected to make as many as a dozen stops on the day, on a visit modelled on an earlier one this year when he roused voters in the area to go out to register as voters.
On Saturday, President Kenyatta will visit Rongai, Kuresoi, Molo and Njoro before holding a public rally in Nakuru town.
On Sunday, the Head of State will attend a church service and thereafter hold a forum with stakeholders of the Matatu industry in Nakuru.
President Kenyatta will conclude his visit of the area by touring Gilgil Escarpment and Naivasha in the afternoon.
In a frenetic but ultimately rewarding week, the President on Tuesday met envoys from the European Union, reiterating his commitment to free, fair, credible and peaceful elections; and later flew to Mombasa to meet stakeholders and then commissioned the freight operations of the Standard Gauge Railway.
NASA leaders will also campaign in Kakamega and Nandi Saturday as they seek to consolidate their support across the country.
