Nakuru Town East MP David Gikaria reaffirmed their support to President Uhuru saying he is welcome to visit Nakuru.

President Uhuru is expected to visit Nakuru Town on Wednesday where he will preside over two key functions.  

Gikaria who was speaking ahead of the Wednesday visit said leaders from Nakuru have resolved their differences and they support the President.

The MP further praised the Jubilee government for supporting development projects in the region as he pledged to support the president, assuring him that the region was still behind Jubilee despite the politics.

“These attacks against the President may have sent a wrong signal to the Head of State, but as leaders, we have resolved our internal differences and we fully support the President.” 

“As Nakuru MPs, we all support the President because he has initiated a lot of development projects in the region,” said Gikaria as quoted by nation.co.ke.

Nakuru Town West MP Samuel Arama said the region still supports and respects Uhuru especially after the projects he initiated.

“Most of the development projects that have made my constituency shine, including street lighting, infrastructural development and building of police stations, are as a result of the good will of President Kenyatta’s government,” said Arama.

Early this year, Bahati MP Onesmus Kimani Ngunjiri attacked President Uhuru claiming that he was turning his back on Deputy President William Ruto whom he vowed to endorse as his successor once he retires in 2022.
