Excitement is sitting across Nyanza as local leaders prepare to welcome President Uhuru Kenyatta to the region in his first visit since his re-election in 2018.

A number of leaders have urged residents to welcome the President in the region when he comes on 13th or 14th December.

Yesterday, Siaya Governor Cornel Rasanga, Senators; James Orengo (Siaya), Moses Kajwang (Homabay) and Fred Outa (Kisumu) confirmed that the President was coming to the county to launch several road projects among other projects.

“It is a very positive thing that the roads are going to be tarmacked as a result of the unity between the President and our party Leader Raila Odinga. The most important thing is that Siaya is going to be a beneficiary of the national projects during the reign of resident Uhuru, this is because of our prayers as well,” said Rasanga.

Senator Orengo claimed that the President will be visiting Siaya County to reaffirm the residents his support for Raila’s Presidential candidature in 2022.

Orengo said that ODM party was confident that this new unity between the President and Raila will lead to a presidency for the party leader.

“Remember the President recently said that he will surprise the country on who will support for the Presidential race in 2022. We will ask him when he comes, who he thinks will be the next President of Kenya,” noted Orengo.
