NAIROBI, Kenya, Oct 5 – President Uhuru Kenyatta’s campaign tour takes him to five counties on Thursday.

His campaign blitz will take him to the counties of Kisii, Nyamira, Nakuru, Meru and Mombasa in less than a week.

The President will kick off his latest meet-the-people tour in Kisii and Nyamira counties to broaden his support base.

In the August 8 presidential poll that were annulled by the Supreme Court, President Kenyatta garnered 106,894 votes (52.07pc of the votes cast) in Nyamira while in Kisii he got 175,415 votes (43.22pc).

On Friday, President Kenyatta returns to his stronghold of Meru to urge residents to turn up in large numbers and vote for him in the October 26 fresh election like they did on August 8.

He will on Saturday join other faithful for the Catholic Church’s national prayer day at the Subukia Shrine in Nakuru County.

From Nakuru County, the President takes his re-election campaigns to the Coast region starting with a meet-the-people tour of Mombasa County on Sunday.

During the tours, the President will reiterate his message and vision of unity and transformation agenda that will guarantee a free, equitable, stable, inclusive and prosperous Kenya.

He will also urge Kenyans to turn up in large numbers again to cast their votes to reconfirm their choice after the Supreme Court annulled his August 8 election victory without contesting the fact that he won with a significant majority.

Last week, President Kenyatta visited the Western Kenya counties of Busia, Bungoma and Kakamega where he was assured of massive support in the October 26 fresh polls given his unprecedented development track record that has lifted the lives of many residents.
