President Uhuru Kenyatta has rewarded Kwale governor Sam Mvurya with KSH 150 Million after his hard work impressed the president.
Uhuru was on tour to the coastal region where he inspected the governor’s development track. It was in the process of inspection that the Kinango Teacher’s College caught his eye.
The president was quick to shower Mvurya with a lot of praises, further adding that the college will benefit all Kenyans. He then went on to promise to add the governor Ksh 150 million so he can complete the project.
“Your governor’s development record stands out. I am impressed with the work he has undertaken to ensure the county’s growth. I am pleased with how he is constructing this college as it will not only aid Mombasa, Kwale and Kilifi residents but all Kenyans in general.”
“I do not have much to add to what he has already done. All I can do is reward him with Ksh50 million this year to complete this school. In next year’s budget, I will add him Ksh100 million.’
Uhuru went on to acknowledge that the college will help in growing Kenya’s economy in the long run. Mvurya also revealed that the school would accommodate over 12,000 students per year.
The president further advised leaders to focus on developing their areas instead of concentrating on divisive politics. He also acknowledged that Kenyans are tired of tribalism, and leaders should lead by example.
“We want our children to learn and access better healthcare. We want to create jobs with good salaries. We are tired of always talking about this tribe or that tribe,” Uhuru said.
Kenyatta also visited the Mama Ngina waterfront Park where he interacted with locals. He further promised small-scale business people of the government’s support. According to him, the government will uplift their businesses after the pandemic affected them.
