President Uhuru Kenyatta Wednesday launched the construction of a key road in Kajiado County that will accelerate development, urging the Maa Community to support him in the August 8 polls.
The President said the construction of the 70 Km Imaroro-Mashuru-Isara road at a cost of Kshs 3.6 billion will ease the movement of goods, services and the people, spurring economic growth not only for the livestock keepers but Kenya in general.
“Unlike our opponents who are story tellers, we in Jubilee are action oriented,” said the President.
The President was speaking in Isara, Kajiado County, when he launched the construction works of the road as he began his meet-the-people tour of the vast county.
President Kenyatta called on the Maa community to unite and support his re-election bid as his government continues to expand electricity connections, build roads and other infrastructural projects aimed at uplifting the lives of all Kenyans.
He said the construction of Imaroro-Mashuru-Isara road will transform the community and even attract more investors to the county.
“We will make sure this road reaches Suswa, this will in turn attract investors who will set up cooling industries for the farm produce grown in this area apart from ensuring markets for livestock,” said the President.
The President said in the short period of four years, Jubilee has more than doubled electricity connections in the country apart from initiating various development projects and programmes aimed at empowering all Kenyans.
“Our agenda is to unite all Kenyans, as we develop the country to ensure shared prosperity amongst wananchi,” said President Kenyatta.
He called on the residents to support Joseph Ole Lenku (Jubilee aspirant for the Kajiado gubernatorial seat) and Kajiado East MP and Peris Tobiko among other Jubilee candidates in the County.
Also present were Cabinet Secretary for Internal Security and Co-ordination of National Government Joseph Nkaisery, Kajiado South MP Katoo Ole Metito among others.
