Eleven Jubilee MPs under the Mt Kenya Leadership Caucus have defended President Uhuru Kenyatta’s development record in the region.
Addressing a press conference at Parliament Buildings on Tuesday, they said they have seen change.
Nominated MP Cecily Mbarire said since 2013 when Jubilee took over, there has been development in every constituency.
“As the leaders from the region, we appreciate the work the Jubilee government has done since 2013. We are, however, aware that there is still more work to be done as per expectations of our people,” Mbarire said.
The caucus said Uhuru deserves “utmost respect from all Kenyans, especially leaders and more so thos elected under his party”.
The group said Uhuru has a constitutional mandate to develop the whole country without bias adding that leaders also have the responsibility to lobby for projects in their areas.
The caucus said it will continue to engage the President to lobby for projects.
Gatundu South MP Kuria had claimed that Uhuru has neglected Central Kenya and was developing areas that did not vote for Jubilee.
