In a move to consolidate full support for his Top 4 Agenda, President Uhuru Kenyatta on Tuesday met Narok County leaders at State House Nairobi ahead of Madaraka Day celebrations which will be held at Narok Stadium.
The leaders expressed their full support for the President in his efforts to unite the country through the Building Bridges Initiative, rid the country of corruption and in the implementation of the government’s Big 4 Agenda.
On his part, the President called on Narok leaders and residents to shun divisive politics and remain united so as to accelerate the development of their region.
A section of the County’s leaders have already drummed up support for Deputy President William Ruto ahead of the 2022 Presidential race. Led by Narok Governor Samuel Ole Tunai, the leaders have said they will not be swayed by the Kieleweke movements that is reportedly focused on ensuring that the deputy president William Ruto does not ascend to the presidency in 2022.
Narok East MP Ken Aramat, on his part, has been quoted at a past function insisting that as Jubilee, they had agreed to give President Uhuru Kenyatta 10 years after which they would fully support DP Ruto, adding that they will not change their minds.
“We, the poor people, are may in this country… and we will decide who takes it in 2022. We hear Raila is walking around shaking hands,” said Aramat.
“We have given President Uhuru Kenyatta ten years, and we had an agreement as Jubilee that we would support William Ruto, we cannot back down.”
The 2022 campaign heat is already taking effect after President Uhuru Kenyatta toned down on his support for William Ruto in 2022 raising eyebrows in Ruto’s camp.
