Uhuru calls for six-piece voting for Jubilee candidates
President Uhuru Kenyatta and his deputy, William Ruto, have called on the electorate to embrace the six-piece-voting pattern for Jubilee nominees saying that candidates who will lose in the August 8 polls will be accommodated if Jubilee forms the next government.
Kenyatta and Ruto were speaking in Trans Nzoia during a vote hunt tour in the North Rift region as they issued 6,000 title deeds to residents and announced that another 120,000 would be issued within the next six weeks.
The two, in a number of stopovers, took a swipe at the opposition accusing its leaders of practising tribal politics instead of working for the greater good of the country.
President Kenyatta assured Uasin Gishu residents that no stamp duty related costs will accrue as the State had waived off more than Ksh 1.2 billion to cater for this expense.
“We want to make sure that every Kenyan has a title for the land he or she owns,” Kenyatta said.
“The Government has reduced the price of fertilizer from Ksh 1,500 to Ksh 1,200 and has subsidized the cost of seeds to Kh 120 in anticipation of the next planting season.” Kenyatta said.
The head of state, during a visit to a semen centre in the region promised that the State will release Ksh 200 million to pay the salary arrears owed to 25,000 of the centre’s employees.
Ruto urged the residents to vote for Jubilee because the ruling party is confident of being re-elected.
They called on the Luhya community to support the ruling coalition urging them to ‘walk with’ Jubilee.
