President Uhuru Kenyatta has said he will respect the decision Kenyans will make in the August 8 elections.
The President, who was accompanied by his deputy William Ruto said Jubilee was ready to face National Super Alliance (Nasa) in the ballot and would respect the wishes of the voters.
“We in Jubilee are asking the opposition to maintain peace and sell their agenda and policies instead dwelling on insults. After Kenyans have made their choices, we shall accept their decision,” he said.
He called for peaceful campaigns across the country and asked the youth to shun politicians, who were out to use them to fan violence.
“In 2022, the agenda of this country will be driven by a new generation of youthful leaders and I can assure you Kenya will never be the same again,” said President Kenyatta while addressing hundreds of Kakamega residents who had turned up to meet him at the Golf Hotel junction.
He later drove along Kenyatta Street before turning to Canon Awori road in a convoy of vehicles while acknowledging greetings from residents. He later flew to Trans-Nzoia County.
President Kenyatta said Kenyans would no longer be swayed by empty rhetoric and propaganda from the opposition meant to divide the country.
He challenged Nasa leaders to tell Kenyans what their development agenda was instead of preoccupying themselves with spreading propaganda to give the government a bad name.
“In the last four years, we have outlined our achievements as Jubilee and told Kenyans our plans if we are re-elected. Let us all promote peaceful campaigns and give Kenyans the opportunity to decide who their next leaders will be,” he said.
He asked the residents to support Jubilee and promised to return in a week’s time to launch his campaigns in the region.
The President assured residents that there would be adequate supply of the subsidised maize flour in supermarkets and shops which will sell at Sh90 for the two kilogramme packet to address the shortage.
“The opposition has been bashing us claiming Jubilee has failed to address the high cost of living in the country but very soon things will improve and the prices of basic commodities will come down,” he said.
