“We need to cooperate and work together as agents of service delivery, unnecessary noise will not do,” he added.

Noting that the government he leads belongs to all the 40 million Kenyans, the President emphasised that the government will serve all Kenyans without bias on political affiliations.

“We shall serve those who voted for us and those who voted for our competitors without discrimination, let us not talk about removing some people from government to create space for others.”

President Kenyatta told area residents that having overwhelmingly voted for the Jubilee coalition they had an obligation to protect the government to succeed in delivering on its election pledges.

“To engage in unnecessary sideshows could derail the Government’s transformative agenda.”

The President acknowledged that he was indebted to the people of the rift valley region having supported him in 2002 when he made his debut as a Presidential candidate and this year when they actually ensured the resounding victory of the Jubilee coalition.

President Kenyatta noted that the teaming together of TNA and URP was underpinned by the need to bring together two communities that were previously antagonistic to each other, especially in every election year adding that the jubilee win had vindicated them.

President Kenyatta also touched on Mau saying all those evicted from the forests have since been resettled elsewhere and called on the county governments bordering the Mau to work closely with the national government in conserving the water tower.

Deputy President, William Ruto, said the government will build a referral hospital in the South Rift area to ease pressure on the Moi teaching and referral hospital in Eldoret and asked local residents to identify land for the project.

On appointments in the public service, the Deputy President said it was being done carefully to ensure that all qualified Kenyans are considered and no one was left out.

He assured that the government will address all the issues raised by the leaders including road construction, looking for better prices for tea, subsidising fertiliser and other farm inputs among others.

The chairman of Council of Governors, Isaac Ruto, asked the striking medical workers to resume work as their grievances were being addressed by the County Governments.
