President William Ruto today promised to form an all-inclusive government in delivering the national agenda.
Speaking while attending church service at Inland Africa Church (AIC) Homa Bay Town earlier today, the president said he’s keen to fulfill the pledges he made during the economic forums prior to the just concluded polls.
However, the wider Nyanza local leadership snubbed the president by giving the event a wide berth.
“We will work with all the leaders so that we can transform Homa Bay. We are going to work together so that we can serve you as the people who have elected us.” President Ruto said.
He added that: “I want to assure you that the agreement we made between the people of Homa Bay when I came here for our economic forum, that commitment, I am going to work with all elected leaders in Homa Bay and across the country so that we can transform our country on the basis we have agreed upon.”
The President arrived at the church minutes before 10am accompanied by ICT CS nominee Eliud Owalo, Kiharu MP Ndindi Nyoro, Ugenya MP David Ochieng, former Migori governor Okoth Obado, former Kisumu governor Jack Ranguma and former Kisumu Senator Fred Outa among other leaders from the region.
He said he will work toward fulfilling the promises he made during the campaigns.
He added that the time for competition is over and people should move on to try to better things in the country.
“We have to move on and see the changes we can do for our country. That will be possible if we come together and understand that now we are not in competition,” he said.
Today is his maiden visit to Homa Bay county since his election.
However, Homa Bay Governor Gladys Wanga and Homa Bay Town MP George Peter Kaluma failed to join Ruto for a church service.
“I wish to extend a warm welcome to the President on behalf of the great people of Homa Bay and request him to feel at home. I’m however out of the county on official duty and will therefore be unable to join HE for the church service and have communicated the same to His Excellency,” she said.
