Deputy President William Ruto now says no region of the country will be left to lag behind in terms of development under the Jubilee administration.
The deputy president who was in Tana River said the ruling coalition beginning to roll out development projects within marginalized areas as its people deserve better services from the government.
Ruto spoke even as Wiper party leader Kalonzo Musyoka claimed he was the best candidate for state house next year.
The deputy president has been on a coastal political tour which has seen him traverse the region drumming up support for Jubilee Party.
On Sunday, Ruto expressed optimism that the coast voting bloc will shift its allegiance from CORD in favor of jubilee come next year and on Monday, Ruto took the same message to Tana River as he rallied area residents to embrace the Jubilee party
It is here that the country’s second in command vowed that no region of this nation will be left out from Jubilee’s development agenda.
He said areas which have long been kept at the periphery stand a chance to scale new heights under President Uhuru Kenyatta’s administration.
Leaders in his company rallied the locals to back Uhuru and Ruto’s re-election as the area stands to gain more in Jubilee than in CORD.
Ruto continued his charm offensive at the coast as CORD Co-principal Kalonzo Musyoka jetted back to the country from the US where he was feted for his efforts to bring Peace in the troubled South Sudan during his tenure as the Kenya’s Foreign minister.
Seemingly cheerful Kalonzo in fact went ahead and declared that this was a testament of his rise to the apex of the country’s leadership.
The former vice president further called for a re-think on Kenya’s mission in Somalia.
