Uhuru joins Ju­bilee team in im­promptu tour of city

The Star (Kenya) - - Front Page -

Pres­i­dent Uhuru Keny­atta yes­ter­day urged Nairobi gover­nor as­pi­rants John­son Sakaja and Mike Sonko to work to­gether for Ju­bilee to win the seat. He urged them to as­sure their sup­port­ers that who­ever wins the Ju­bilee Party nom­i­na­tion will sup­port the other. The Pres­i­dent said Ju­bilee lost the seat in 2013 be­cause can­di­dates de­cided to run on their own. “Each of you must com­mit to sup­port­ing who­ever gets the Ju­bilee ticket for us to take this seat and con­tinue im­prov­ing Nairobi and the rest of the coun­try,” Uhuru said. He spoke yes­ter­day when he joined the two in an im­promptu tour of the city.

The tour started with the three eat­ing nyama choma at Keny­atta mar­ket. They were joined by Mathare MP Stephen Kar­iuki and Nairobi woman rep­re­sen­ta­tive Rachel Shebesh. The three vis­ited Muthurwa mar­ket and later went to Mlango Kubwa. Uhuru toured a mar­ket in Muthurwa and in­spected the newly con­structed road fi­nanced by the na­tional govern­ment. He ad­dressed the pub­lic at the three stops. Uhuru urged the politi­cians to preach unity in the city as they sell the new­ly­launched Ju­bilee Party. Sakaja and Sonko are among five Ju­bilee politi­cians who have de­clared their in­ter­est in the seat held by ODM’s Evans Kidero. Kidero and Deputy Gover­nor Jonathan Mueke have said clinch­ing the seat will be no walk in the park.
