President Uhuru Kenyatta has scheduled a meeting with the Azimio Coalition running mate Martha Karua and leaders from Mt Kenya after landing back from Switzerland, where he is currently on a state visit.
The president is expected in coming weeks to kick off a whirlwind tour of his backyard commissioning a number of state projects and introducing the Azimio Coalition flagbearer Raila Odinga and his running mate Martha Karua to residents.
Reports from the ruling party’s Pangani Headquarters disclose the Head of State is also going back to the region with the Jubilee Party leader’s hat, accompanied by all aspirants running for various seats in the region with the dove party.
According to Jubilee Party Director of Elections Kanini Kega, the Mt Kenya tours by President Uhuru will be the beginning of his national campaign to various parts of the country, drumming up support for Raila Odinga and Azimio Coalition.
”His countrywide campaigns will start with the mountain. We do not just want him to campaign. The President will also commission projects. President Kenyatta will also show us which direction to take. It is obvious Mt Kenya is with Karua. She is the person we will oscillate around when the boss leaves office,” the Kieni MP told the Nation.
Othaya Hospital, Chaka market, Naromoru Hospital, Nyambene milk plant, and the expanded Kenol-Marua road are some of the projects expected to be commissioned by the Head of State.
