Top Governor says Kenya’s economy on positive path, dismisses critics

Bungoma Governor Kenneth Lusaka has reassured the nation that Kenya’s economy is on a positive trajectory.

Speaking at an interdenominational prayer in Tapsagoi, Turbo constituency on February 25, Governor Lusaka pointed to the strengthening shilling against the dollar as a clear indicator of economic improvement.

“I can assure you that the president has demonstrated a commitment to transforming the country’s economy, and early indicators affirm this,” he said during the function.

Lusaka highlighted efforts to reduce the high public debt, expressing optimism that Kenyans would soon experience tangible changes in the economic landscape.

While dismissing critics, he said: “Forget about the naysayers and the opposition; while they must oppose and criticise everything, the truth is that things are improving.”

At the same time, the Governor appealed to Kenyans to give the Kenya Kwanza administration time to implement its manifesto and plan fully.

Other speakers at the event echoed his sentiments with Senators Jackson Mandago (Uasin Gishu) and Samson Cherargei (Nandi) assuring Kenyans that President William Ruto was fully in charge of economic transformation of the country.

The Senators assured the President that they will back his agenda on the floor of the House and promised to ensure that all bills that require parliamentary approval will be passed.

Notable attendees at the event included Health Cabinet Secretary Susan Nakhumicha, Uasin Gishu Governor Jonathan Bii, local MP Janet Sietenei, MPs Charles Gimose and Fred Ikana among other leaders including Farouk Kibet.
