President Kenyatta to tour Western, North Rift over the weekend

12 November 2015, 10:58 Philomenah Chebet

Nairobi - President Uhuru Kenyatta will over the weekend start a three day tour of western Kenya and the North Rift, where he will meet regional leaders and members of the public.

The Head of State in the visits that start on Saturday will also inspect, commission and launch a number of development projects in the regions, according to State House spokesman Manoah Esipisu.

Esipisu in a statement sent to newsrooms explained that President Kenyatta's weekend trip to the region will see him tour Kakamega, Bungoma, Kisumu, Uasin Gishu, Elgeyo Marakwet and West Pokot counties.

“In Bungoma, President Kenyatta will open the Lwakhakha border point before issuing Kibabii University its charter. He will then meet leaders from the region for dinner at the Kakamega State Lodge,” he said.

“The opening of the border post - a crossing point to Uganda - re-emphasises Kenya’s commitment to the free movement of goods, services and people throughout the East African region. That commitment to openness is central to the region’s prosperity and ours,” added Esipisu.

He noted the awarding of a charter to Kibabii University marks a successful end of the long journey to a full university, the only such institution in Bungoma County.

“The charter brings Bungoma new opportunities in education and enterprise; it brings home the promise of devolution,” said Esipisu.

According to the program, President Kenyatta will on Sunday attend a thanksgiving service at the Anglican Church of Kenya cathedral in Kisumu. Thereafter, he will travel to Eldoret to meet leaders from Elgeyo Marakwet, Uasin Gishu and Nandi counties at the Eldoret State Lodge.

On the third day the President will launch a number of projects in the North Rift, including the tractor project in Eldoret, before commissioning the Iluka-Elgeyo border road, and Siyoi water project.

In the afternoon, he will visit and inspect the campus of Kapenguria’s Medical Training College in West Pokot County before flying back to Nairobi.

“The road and water projects show the Jubilee government’s commitment to infrastructure, economic growth and equitable provision of services right across the country,” concluded the statement by Esipisu.
