NAIROBI, Kenya, Jun 4 – President Uhuru Kenyatta was on Sunday set to conclude his three-day tour of Nyandarua and Nakuru counties as he gathers support for his re-election in the August 8 General Election.
On Sunday morning, the President was scheduled to attend a church service at the Kingdom seekers church in Nakuru and later tour suburbs in the area on a meet-the-people tour.
He will then campaign in Free Area, Lanet, Mbaruk, Gilgil, and Naivasha on his way to the capital Nairobi, accompanied by his Deputy William Ruto and a host of MPs and aspirants.
Throughout the campaigns, President Kenyatta has been urging Kenyans give his administration a second chance to enable him complete ongoing development projects.
“We have not let you down on development in the last four and a half years. We intend to do more to transform the country in the next five years. That is why we are asking for your votes,” President Kenyatta told Nakuru residents at Afraha Stadium on Saturday.
On Friday, the President toured Nyandarua County where he told residents that the choice in the August 2017 election is between his team that has delivered on its pledges of investing in the Kenyan people against opponents feeding the nation on empty propaganda.
President Kenyatta told residents to keep the faith in their team, which has already delivered on pledges to build a new rail and roads and provided cleaner water, free maternity for women, and clean exams.
Jubilee and NASA leaders are keen to mobilize support in their strongholds, seen as key in determining their victory in the August election, with Raila and Kalonzo camping in Western Kenya.
The Opposition outfit, National Super Alliance team on Saturday officially launched its presidential campaign with the aim of taking its candidate Raila Odinga to the State House.
Odinga, who is campaigning on a “10-million-strong” slogan says he is confident of victory in the August vote.
He urged NASA supporters to confirm their voter registration details as the exercise nears closer.
When voted in, Odinga has promised huge reforms in the police force, security for all Kenyans and ease the cost of living.
“I am urging all supporters to come out in large numbers and vote so that we can take the Jubilee team home,” Odinga told a cheering crowd in Kakamega.
