Uhuru demands respect
20 April 2015, 15:21
Nairobi - President Uhuru Kenyatta will demand respect from Kisumu residents as he makes his way to the lakeside city Tuesday.
The president will open the Second Annual Devolution Conference at Tom Mboya Labour College Tuesday.
Sadly for him, he has not had the best of times in the region in past months, with the well documented heckling in Migori last year still fresh in the minds of many.
He was to return to the region late last year to open up a number of projects but changed his plans at the last minute.
And Kisumu Governor Jack Ranguma has called on area residents to respect the president.
" I ask that we give the president a good time here and that we respect him and his role," Ranguma told News24 on phone whilst confirming the president's trip.
CORD leader Raila Odinga also called on political tolerance for other leaders.
" We all travel to other parts of the country. This is our country and we must respect each other," he said.
ODM chairman John Mbadi also called on tolerance from supporters in the region.
" We have to respect each other despite of our political differences," he said.
