President Uhuru Kenyatta is on Wednesday, touring three counties of the Luo Nyanza.
Uhuru is today taking his Jubilee Party campaign tour to Kisumu and Homa Bay, and to talk to them about his Action Plan to deliver more jobs and lower prices by building the strong economic foundations necessary for the prosperity and transformation of this nation.
He makes the trip following his meet-the-people visit in Narok Tuesday where he spoke about the foundations for prosperity there, including his decision to waive agricultural loans to give people the opportunity to continue to invest in agricuture to grow the country.
In Homa Bay, Uhuru will emphasise investment across all of Kenya to bolster growth, citing the $250 million foreign investment for a hyacinth-to-electricity plant to provide cheaper and more reliable energy for all local residents.
In Kisumu, the president will attend the ground-breaking for a new brewery after a Sh15 billion investment, creating thousands of local jobs.
Later he will visit Siaya County, which has benefited enormously from investment in roads and electricity.
“The president will make the crucially important point that the foundations for economic prosperity that he has built are for all Kenyans, regardless of tribal or political affiliation. Every location in Kenya, including areas perceived to lean towards the opposition, have benefited from the building of these economic foundations,” said State House spokesperson, Manoah Esipisu.
