President Uhuru Kenyatta and his deputy William Ruto have expressed their high regard for Nakuru County due to the part it played in their efforts to emancipate the country from election-related violence.

The revelation was made during an address by Kenyatta and Ruto at the streets of Nakuru town during their meet-the-people tour.

“Nakuru is close to my heart. This is where we started our journey to unite Kenyans,”  the President said.

The Deputy President also expressed similar sentiments about Nakuru County, which is part of his Rift Valley home ground.

“Nakuru is special to us. It is the bedrock of Jubilee and it is where we started our journey to unite Kenyans,” the Deputy President said.

The President and the DP also told thousands of supporters who turned to merge and form Jubilee Party.

Ruto said the party will unite all Kenyans irrespective of tribe or religion.

“We formed Government through a coalition but this time we will form Government when we are in one united party,” said the DP.

The two leaders made several stops during their last day in Nakuru, addressing residents along the way after launching ultra-modern hospital equipment at the Nakuru Level 5 Hospital.

The equipment included: an ICU, theater, a renal unit and MRI. The renal unit has 49 dialysis centers and can handle 2,500 patients. Using the MRI machine will cost residents only Ksh 10,000 as compared to Ksh 40,000 which they used to pay when they travel to Nairobi.

The President later left Nakuru for Nyandarua County in the afternoon where he first launched the construction of Oljororok-Dundori road.

President Kenyatta and DP Ruto arrived in Nakuru on Wednesday for a two-day tour which saw him launch a number of projects including an interchanges along the Eldoret-Nakuru-Nairobi highway at a cost Ksh 2.6 billion.

During one of his addresses in Nakuru, President Kenyatta called on political leaders to avoid inciting Kenyans saying the government can also realize development in a peaceful environment.

The Head of State further accused CORD of being politically greedy saying they should give him time to deliver on his mandate.

Prior to visiting Nakuru, President Kenyatta was in Baringo where he commissioned Chemususu Dam.
