The First Lady, Mama Rachel Ruto, has urged leaders to support the actualization of the projects envisaged in the Bottom-Up Economic Transformation Agenda by the Government.
The First Lady was speaking in Nairobi during the 70th birthday celebrations for Bishop Dr. JB Masinde, the founder and senior pastor of Deliverance Church International, Umoja.
Mama Rachel Ruto singled out a multistorey residential housing development that will be built on Kangundo Road by Deliverance Church Umoja.
She urged other leaders present to identify similar potential projects alongside the priority areas of agriculture, MSME housing and settlement, manufacturing, the digital superhighway and creative economy, the service economy, and environment and climate change.
She further expressed optimism for the nation’s full economic recovery from the effects of the prolonged drought that was the worst in 40 years, with some areas missing rainfall for more than five consecutive years.
The First Lady was accompanied by Nairobi Governor Johnson Sakaja, Nairobi Deputy Governor Njoroge Muchiri, Spouse to the Deputy President Pastor Dorcas Rigathi and Embakasi West Member of Parliament Mark Mwenje among other leaders.
