Uhuru urged to keep his promises

12 March 2013, 14:09 Steve Wambugu

Nakuru business community has lauded the Jubilee victory saying the country stands to benefit a lot under Uhuru and Ruto leadership.

The chairman of Central Rift Matatu owners Stephen Muli said on Monday that the Jubilee alliance should streamline the Matatu sector saying the industry was facing a lot of challenges due to bad leadership.

“We hope the Jubilee government will address the challenges that have been ailing this industry for decades and we hope this issue will be solved once the cabinet is made,” he said.

The chairman further said the matatu owners were also looking forward to working closely with the new government as one way of promoting the economy of the country.

Jubilee government should start implementing their pledges

Muli also said that the Jubilee government should hit the ground running in implementing the pledges they made to Kenyans during their campaigns.

He also observed that Kenyans elected the duo on the basis of the promises they made to the electorates saying they should work extra hard to fulfill them.

“They should now work towards implementing some of these promises they made to the electorates,” said the chairman.

Victory of Jubilee alliance belongs to the country

In a quick rejoinder, prominent businessman in Nakuru town Zakayo Maina said the victory of Jubilee alliance belongs to the entire country and not to specific people from certain region or tribe.

Maina also maintained that, CORD going to court to seek legal justice was their democratic right and that no one should stop them.

However, he noted that Kenya economy would have suffered a major blow should there have been a runoff between Uhuru Kenyatta and Raila Odinga.

“It is a good thing that as a country we did not go for a runoff because that would have been a major blow to our economy,” he observed.

A spot check by the media in Nakuru town also revealed that business had resumed with many traders hoping their businesses would peak as the week progresses.
