Uhuru has not 'forgotten' the Gusii

13 February 2014, 12:35 Victor Tinto

Nairobi - President Uhuru Kenyatta has not forgotten the Gusii and has pledged to work hand in hand with them to enhance the standard of living in the community.

The president was speaking after hosting a group of Gusii leaders at State House Nairobi Wednesday, where he pledged to work with the community to boost development.

The leaders, numbering 15, had made a courtesy call to State House for talks with the president on a number of issues affecting the community and its people.

Disquiet over government appointments that have sidelined the community as well as the slow enactment of projects in the region were some of the queries.

But after a two hour meeting, the leaders came out hand in hand, with the president promising new beginnings for the community.

" We have agreed in this open and refreshing meeting that there will be new beginnings in Kisii county and that the government will do its best to improve the standard of living for its people, he said.

" The discussions have been fruitful as we have spoken solely about development, putting political differences and associations aside for the good of the people.

" It is good that we lay politics aside and work hard to deliver the promises we all made to our people, he said.

The president pledged to improve infrastructure in the region, as well as re-build the dilapidated Gusii stadium and other public facilities.

Kisii senator Chris Obure thanked the president for his audience.

" We thank the president for his audience and for giving us an ear. We have had fruitful talks that we hope will herald the improvement of life for the people of Kisii, he said.
