JUBILEE Representatives in Nyanza Region has urged President Uhuru Kenyatta to immediately visit Nyanza Region as scheduled next Week on Thursday.

Led by the Chairman of Jubilee Leaders in Nyanza Yusuf Ooro Odongo, the officials said President Uhuru Kenyatta has all the rights to visit any part of the Country without any restrictions as the Head of State and the Government.
Addressing the press in Kisumu, Ooro who is also the TNA Coordinator said the President will be purely visiting Nyanza region on development purposes.

He said the Jubilee Fraternity in Nyanza region is very much ready to welcome the President during his next week’s visit in Nyanza region, adding that the residents of Nyanza region should turn up in large numbers so as to welcome the Head of State.
He told off the opposition party especially some ODM Party MPs from the region who have tried to say that they were given short notice on the President’s intention to visit the region especially Kisumu, Siaya and Homa Bay Counties.

He said President Uhuru’s visit to the region has nothing to do with politics hence should not be politicized at all.

“We want to tell those MPs from the opposition Party that the President’s visit in Nyanza region should not be politicized and the Head of State should come and bring any development which his national Government should bring in these Counties,” Ooro said.

Ooro blamed constant bad politics for Nyanza region of not realizing good development with the past regimes, adding that there is need to revive collapsed factories like Kisumu Cotton Mill{KICOMI},Miwani Sugar Factory among others.
President Uhuru Kenyatta was set to visit the Three Counties this week on Wednesday but the visit has since been postponed to next week on Thursday.
Ooro said the President mean well for this Nation including Nyanza, adding that recently the Head of State visited Migori County and sugarcane farmers benefitted from funds the Government paid for them owed to them by the Sugar Factories.

President Uhuru Kenyatta was set to visit three Counties in Nyanza namely Kisumu, Siaya and Homa Bay with an aim of commissioning development projects this week but the visit has been pushed to next week on Thursday.

However, a section of leaders in Kisumu County have said they were given short notice hence needed more time to consult on which areas of the County should the Head of State visit during his tour of the region.

The President last Month visited Migori County where a section of the Youth who were attending his rally at Migori Primary school heckled the area Governor Okoth Obado in the presence of the President forcing the Head of State to cut short his speech.

The Migori County Governor Okoth Obado later ferried a delegation of over 300 people to apologize to President Uhuru in Nairobi where they indeed apologized to the Head of State who later pardoned those Youth who were earlier arrested in connection to the heckling.

Same sentiment urging President Kenyatta to visit Nyanza region has been echoed by the Nyanza Council of Church Leaders Chairman Bishop Dr. Washington Ogonyo Ngede and the the Kisumu County Vice Chair of the Kenya National Chambers of Commerce and Industry Getrude Owiny.
