Nairobi - President Uhuru Kenyatta will make a two day state visit to Meru upon his return from Algeria.
The president will arrive back in the country Thursday evening from Algeria where he has spent three days on an official government visit.
On the first day, the President will start his visit in Imenti South Sub-County where he will open the newly upgraded Meru – Marimba – Mitunguu Road. Thereafter, President Kenyatta will proceed to Nkubu Town where he will address members of the public and thereafter to Meru Central Sub-County where he will officially open Kariene Market and address a roadside meeting.
In the afternoon, President Kenyatta will be in Imenti North Sub-County where he will officially launch the upgrading to bitumen standards of Meru – Mitunguu – Ciakariga Road at Gitimbini site. The President will then proceed to Gakoromone where he will launch the construction works of the Meru Eastern bypass and address a roadside meeting at Gakoromone Market.
The Head of State will conclude his first day of the visit in Buuri Sub-County where he will issue title deeds and address a roadside meeting at Kiirwa town before addressing another roadside meeting at Timau town.
On the second day, the President will visit the sub-counties of Tigania West, Tigania East, Igembe North, Igembe Central and Igembe South.
He will be greeted on his visit by Meru Governor Peter Munya, Senator Kiraitu Murungi and other leaders.
The president is also set to address the issue of the Meru region joining the Jubilee Alliance Party, a move that has been met with resistance from the region's leaders.
Murungi for example, feels that by making the party much bigger, it will swallow the smaller parties and kill democracy and identity.
The president will also speak on the ban on Miraa (Khat) by European governments and the plans his government has for uplifting the County's economy in light of the ban.
