President Uhuru Kenyatta will make a meet-the-people tour of six counties in the next five days.
During the tours, the President will reiterate his message and vision of unity and transformation agenda that will guarantee a free, equitable, stable, inclusive and prosperous Kenya.
President Kenyatta will urge Kenyans to turn up in large numbers again to cast their votes to reconfirm their choice after the Supreme Court annulled his August 8 election victory without contesting the fact that he won with a significant majority.
He will emphasize his position that the Kenyan people will speak once again, and must be heard, on 26 October 2017, the date the electoral agency IEBC has set for fresh elections.
The President has put his campaign teams into shape, led by elected leaders — from grassroots MCAs to Senators, Members of the National Assembly, and Governors. The inclusive teams have also brought on board politicians who did not secure seats in the last election.
The President kickstarted his campaigns for the October elections with visits to Embu and Tharaka Nithi counties on Monday.
On Tuesday, he met Senators, Members of the National Assembly and Governors from Jubilee and affiliated parties.
On Wednesday, the President will tour Isiolo and Meru counties to urge voters to show up in large numbers on voting day. Isiolo and Meru are strongholds of the President.
On Friday, the President will visit Busia, where his fortunes have gained massively with the defection to Jubilee from opposition ranks of Paul Otuoma, the former MP who narrowly lost in the Busia gubernatorial elections. The President will also visit Bungoma for the homecoming of Kenneth Lusaka, the new Senate Speaker.
On Saturday, the President will hold a consultative meeting with 20,000 leaders from Kakamega, Bungoma, Busia and Vihiga at Kakamega State Lodge before addressing a rally at Malaha market, in Mumias East, to celebrate the electoral victory of Jubilee MP Benjamin Washiali.
On Sunday the President will attend Church Service in Kericho Town, where he will later address a major rally
