President Kenyatta will tomorrow, Thursday 7 September 2017, start a meet-the-people tour that will see him visit West Pokot, Bungoma, UasinGishu, Nakuru and Nairobi counties.
The President will use the visits to the counties to thank residents for upholding peace and voting for Jubilee leaders from Members of County Assembly to President in the August 8 polls.
President Kenyatta will also use the visits to mobilise residents to turn out in large numbers and once again vote for him now that the date for the repeat Presidential election has been set.
President Kenyatta will kick off his tour on Thursday in Chepareria, West Pokot, and Bungoma before driving to Eldoret. In Bungoma, President Kenyatta will visit Kimilili constituency to specifically thank residents for supporting Jubilee MPDidmusWekesaBaraza.
On Friday, September 8, the President will take his campaigns to Kericho and Nakuru counties where he will address residents at Kapkatet and Naivasha respectively.
The President will wrap up the first round of his campaign blitz on Saturday, September 9, with a meet-the-people tour of Nairobi County where he will emphasize the message of peace and the need for residents to turn out in large numbers to express their supreme will on the October 17 repeat Presidential election as they did on August 8.
Meanwhile, President Uhuru Kenyatta today at State House Nairobi met Ambassadors and High Commissioners to brief them on the current situation in the country, focusing on the electoral process and the October 17 repeat Presidential elections.
The President also met religious leaders to also bring them up to speed on the same subject, including his concern that elections must be held on the date set by the IEBC to allow primary and secondary school examinations to take place in time, and not to interfere with the academic cycle in the coming year.
