Senate Speaker, Ekwee Ethuro has endorsed re-election of President Uhuru Kenyatta saying the country was set to reach high levels of development.
Ethuro said the President’s interest in investing heavily in infrastructure, energy and education will see Kenya become among the best countries in the world in the next five years.
He said under the President’s leadership, Kenya has gained international recognition “and that why the President was the only one from Africa invited to the G8 Summit”.
He said Jubilee government is fully committed to see devolution succeed, contrary to what opposition was claiming.
“The President has always told me to protect devolution and his government has consistently increased allocations to counties every year,” the Speaker said.
He said elections should be an opportunity for voters to evaluate leaders; those who have performed are allowed to continue and those who have failed to deliver are set home.
He said Kenyans should appreciate the good work of the President’s leadership by re-electing him for another term.
Ethuro was speaking on Monday when he presided over the official opening of new Nyandarua County Assembly chambers in Ol Kalou town. The ceremony was attended by Governor Daniel Waithaka, county speakers Ndegwa Wahome (Nyandarua) Robert Katina (West Pokot) Joseph Kaberia (Meru) and Johnson Osoi (Kajiando). Nyandarua Senator Muriuki Karue was also present.
