Uhuru and Raila bring Kisumu to a standstill with BBI gospel

While touring various projects in Kisumu on Thursday, residents received President Uhuru Kenyatta and Raila Odinga with jubilation.

A majority of people received the two with joy and cheers while displaying placards in support of the newly unveiled Building Bridges Initiative report.

The two leaders who travelled to Kisumu last evening began today’s programme with a morning brief at the Yacht Club.

During the meeting, members of the press remained locked out. Those present in the meeting included Governor Cornel Rasanga of Siaya, Okoth Obado of Migori, Cyprian Awiti of Homa Bay, and Anyang  Nyong’o of Kisumu.

Other leaders in the meeting were nominated senator Rose Nyamunga, MPs Fred Ouda (Kisumu Central), Aduma Owuor (Nyakach), and Opiyo Wandayi (Ugunja).

The Chief Administrative Secretary in the Ministry of East Africa Community Ken Obura was also present.

Kisumu tour

After the meeting, the duo proceeded to the Uhuru Business Park, the Jomo Kenyatta International Stadium, and finally the Jaramogi Oginga Odinga Sports Complex.

The construction of the Uhuru Business Park was built to accommodate 10,000 traders evicted from the Kenya Railways land. Currently, there’s an ongoing refurbishment of the Kisumu Port.

The tour comes a day after a politically charged event at the Kisii State Lodge, where the official unveiling of the BBI report took centre stage.

The Kisumu tour will likely help achieve three significant milestones: Inspection of “Handshake” projects, rally Kisumu residents behind the BBI report, and altering inroads created by the DP in Raila’s backyard.

A few weeks, DP Ruto, who was conspicuously absent at the unveiling of the BBI report, launched his hustler narrative at the former Prime Minister’s stronghold.

At the same time, the DP has continued to hold delegations from Nyanza encompassing clerics, the youth, and women.

However, he still faces a significant challenge after the clerics threw their unwavering support behind the BBI report.

Recently, the ODM party leader laid the groundwork for Mr Kenyatta by hosting Mount Kenya elders and businessman Jimmy Wanjigi.
