President William Ruto has hailed leaders drawn from Western part of the country for rising above party politics and agreeing to work with his administration in creating and expanding economic opportunities for ordinary Kenyans.
“We are indebted to their sacrifice and commitment to philosophy that it is not about us but the people,” said President Ruto as he kicked off a two-day development tour of the region on Thursday.
Upon arrival at Kakamega Airstrip, the Head of State was received by Prime Cabinet Secretary Musalia Mudavadi, Kakamega County Governor Fernandes Barasa and and host of other leaders drawn from the region.
President Ruto commissioned the Kakamega Airstrip, inspected the Kakamega County Teaching and referral Hospital and later shared his administration’s development plan with the leaders at Kakamega State Lodge.
The leaders pledged to work closely with the Head of State in stimulating development in the region while at the same time ensuring he fulfils his pre-election pledges to Kenyans.
