Treasury CS Henry Rotich on Thursday led senior state officials to drum up support for President Uhuru Kenyatta during next week’s polls.
The CS urged Elgeyo Marakwet residents to overwhelmingly vote for Uhuru on Tuesday saying the region benefited a lot from the Jubilee administration.
The campaigns will officially close on Saturday.
Rotich said his appointment as Treasury CS was an indication that Uhuru trusts professionals from Rift Valley.
He defended the current administration’s performance for the past four years it has been in office saying it is unmatched.
Rotich said Uhuru’s re-election pledge of free secondary education from January 2018 is tenable, assuring locals that funds to implement the pledge will be available.
He said at Cherorget, Keiyo South that investments by Jubilee government will lead to more jobs for the youth.
CS Rotich said locals living in landslide prone areas in Keiyo escarpments will be compensated and resettled.
“You have seen the work done by the government in only four years, so let us turn out in large on numbers on Tuesday morning to vote for Uhuru.”
