Kenyan President Uhuru Kenyatta accompanied by deputy William Ruto and other aspirants reached out to Nairobi residents to favor them for a second term in the re-election bid to enable his government complete the development agenda.
Kenyatta urged the people to vote out Governor Evans Kidero who has failed the people and Jubilee has many qualified leaders for replacement.
The president made stop-overs at Wakulima Market, Muthurwa, Kayole, Mwiki and Githurai. He even switched to vernacular while asking Nairobi residents to vote for a Jubilee candidate.
At the Muthurwa market the president asked the people to tell what the governor has done for the people in his tenure.
He also appealed the people to register themselves as voters before the February 14 deadline if not has done yet.
Kenyatta was accompanied by former MP Peter Kenneth, Senator Mike Sonko and former assistant minister Margaret Wanjiru.
He urged people about the groupings of political parties as they only aim for capturing power and such tribal mergers would not help Kenya in moving forward.
At Kayole area he said, “Tribal mergers will not help this country move forward. It’s not about mergers but issues.”
He added if four people can’t agree, how can they think of ruling 40 million Kenyans.
The DP said opposition has come up with flimsy execuses claiming the election would not be free and fair as they are scared of being defeated.
He said, “Is telling Kenyans to register as voters stealing?”
The election is scheduled to be held on 8 August 2017.
