President Uhuru Kenyatta has urged supporters to embrace a six-piece voting pattern for Jubilee to guarantee a strong team that will accelerate the transformation agenda of his administration.
The President – who was campaigning in Nandi County on Monday – called on residents to vote for his team in support of the development implemented in the short span of four years.
“Give us a Jubilee Governor, viagra Senator, MPs and MCAs so that together with them, I and the Deputy President will go on implementing projects that will continue lifting your lives,” President Kenyatta said.
The Head of State spoke as he and Deputy President William Ruto combed through Nandi County, highlighting the Jubilee’s delivery track record worth billions of shillings.
The vote-hunting tour of Nandi County saw the President and his deputy visit Maraba in Tinderet Constituency, Kemeloi, Kaptumo and Mugundoi in Aldai constituency, passing through Samoei Secondary School where he laid a foundation stone for the Koitalel Samoei University before he made other stops including at Nandi Hills, Kapsabet Town, Chepterit and Mosoriot.
President Kenyatta said his administration has connected 55,000 households in Nandi County to electricity compared to only 15,000 done before Jubilee Government came to office, apart from the ongoing construction and tarmacking of 250 km road network.
Speaking when he opened the Aldai Technical Training Institute, the President said his Government has set aside Kshs 250 million to expand the institute to enable it accommodate 700 students to increase training opportunities for the youth in Nandi County.
President Kenyatta castigated the opposition for claiming Jubilee has abandoned farmers, saying his administration has subsidised fertilizer leading to the current price of Kshs 1800 per bag down from close to Kshs 6000 previously.
He assured that the Government has increased funds for subsidy and by December the cost of the essential farm input will further reduce to Kshs 1200.
“Our delivery track record is out there for everybody to see. When our opponents say we have not delivered, ask them to point out what they did for Kenyans for all those years they held leadership positions,” President Kenyatta said, urging the residents to vote for the Jubilee team to continue working to transform the country.
President Kenyatta also spoke of the investment in health by his administration through provision of modern medical equipment to Kapsabet and Nandi Hills hospitals at a cost of Kshs 400 million and Kshs 300 million respectively.
He said the Government has also set aside Kshs 600 million for a water project that will benefit residents.
Deputy President Ruto said Kshs 300 million has been allocated to expand school infrastructure in Nandi County, as the Government moves towards implementing free secondary education beginning next year.
The Deputy President said the opposition neither had a development agenda nor practical policies and asked voters to reject them at the ballot.
He said Jubilee was focused on the unity and the transformational agenda for Kenyans unlike their opponents in National Super Alliance (Nasa) whose focus was on divisive politics.
“Kenyans know what we have done for them in the short period we have been in leadership compared to those in opposition who have nothing to show the country when they served in senior positions in the previous regimes,” said the Deputy President.
Governor Jackson Mandago (Uasin Gishu), MPs Cornelly Serem (Aldai), Alex Kosgei (Emgwen), Julius Melly (Tinderet), Oscar Sudi (Kapsaret), Alfred Keter (Nandi Hills) and Stephen Sang (Nandi) among others accompanied the President.
