Why Uhuru has spent 2 weeks at the Coast

09 January 2016, 17:26 William Korir

Nairobi - President Uhuru Kenyatta has spent the last two weeks at the country's coastal strip, where he has opened up a number of projects and seconded some initiatives.

But why?

The President has overseen a two week long stay which has seen him open grandeur projects as well as try to rectify the age old land issue at the Coast.

In a well planned political move, the President in his visit, has tried to give the people of Coast Province reason to dump the well supported CORD Coalition led by Raila Odinga and vote for him come the 2017 General Elections.

The President has started by reclaiming as much as 350,000 acres of land and handing it back to Lamu residents.

He has also issued title deeds and started and opened many projects during his stay which begun 24 December 2015.

Another major issue he has tried to solve is the Kenya Ferry problem which has caused residents in Mombasa nightmares for the last three years.

He recently sacked the management and will appoint new faces to try streamline services.

Development aside, the President and his Deputy William Ruto have also traversed the Coast where they have held a number of political rallies where they have urged Kenyans to support the newly formed Jubilee Party.

The President has met a number of senior religious, business and political leaders in the aim of converting them to join the Jubilee Party.

State House Mombasa has been a buzz of activities as the President tries his best to have senior figures back his 2017 campaign.

He has also offered jobs in an effort to sway the votes his way.

But will the charm offensive work?

" It might and it might not. The upcoming by election in Malindi will tell us if so," political analyst Michael Njenga says.

" On the other hand, he has nothing to lose. If he fails, he tried. It is better than doing nothing," he believes.

CORD leaders though, are not perturbed by the trip.

" The President is free to visit. It is his right and he is welcome but he will get nothing from here," Mombasa Senator Omar Hassan states.

" The injustices go back a very long time. Title deeds will not change anything" he added.

Jubilee forces though believe that this is the start of a sustained period of pressure on Coastal residents which will see them eventually cross the political divide.

" It is only a matter of time before it changes. Coastal people want development and they have seen that the President is serious about it," a Jubilee strategist who did not want to be named told News24.
