Uhuru sorry for Nyanza snub

14 October 2014, 14:00 Victor Tinto

Nairobi - President Uhuru Kenyatta is sorry for having to postpone his trip to Nyanza and says he will look for a better time to do so.

The president has been forced to look for a different time to travel to the region for a proposed trip after cancelling it in favour of a different trip to Rwanda and then to Ol Karia, ones which have been described as pressing.

Others though, feel the timing of the snub is sinister and that if the president knew he would be elsewhere, he should have planned for it a long time ago.

But according to State House Spokesman Manoah Esipisu, the president will look for a mutually beneficial time for all.

" The president regrets having to cancel at the last minute but the truth is he has to be elsewhere at the same time", he said.

Esipisu said that the president would consult with Nyanza leaders on a good time to head to the region.

" He will consult when back and in due course we promise the people of Nyanza, we will have a date for the trip and he will be there", he added.

The president will be hoping to have a better reception in the area after he was heckled in Migori last month and observers say that he will not have a similar problem.

" The president will not be heckled. We have got rid of the individuals responsible for the chaos last time. The people of Migori are not  bad people and the president acknowledged that, Governor Okoth Obado of Migori said of the impending trip.

The president's deputy William Ruto also had an incident free visit to Migori over the weekend and urged Kenyans to respect all people.

" We must respect each other. When we show respect to each other then we work together and we build the nation, he said.
