President Uhuru Kenyatta this afternoon hosted a goodwill delegation of elected leaders from Kajiado County and urged them to work together in order to realize faster development of the county.
The President cautioned the leaders against divisive politics and urged them to embrace one another irrespective of their political leanings for the common good of all citizens.
“Competitive politics is not the end of everything. We have to continue working together for the betterment of our people,” the President said.
The delegation which was led by Kajiado Governor Joseph Ole Lenku included MP’s Katoo Ole Metito (Kajiado South), George Sunkuiya (Kajiado West), Joseph Manje (Kajiado North), Senator Philip Mpayie and Kajiado Women Rep, Mary Seneta.
Responding to issues raised by the leaders, President Kenyatta said his government is committed to delivering its development promises to the people of Kajiado.
He said development projects which the government is implementing in the county will be achieved in an environment of peace and unity.
“The work we want to do can only be achieved when leaders work together as a team. I am very committed to delivering the promises I made to the people of Kajiado,” said President Kenyatta.
While cautioning the visiting leaders against divisive politics, the President said there are several on-going projects, among them the construction of Ngong-Kiserian-Isinya-Mashuru Road which the Head of State visited over the weekend.
“What makes things difficult is cheap politics, but when people agree on what needs to be done, then it becomes easier to deliver services. We must ensure political calmness in order to develop our country,” said the President.
The President urged the leaders to come together and develop a genuine list of Kajiado County residents who need title deeds for their pieces of land in support of the government’s ongoing titling programme which is being slowed down by confusion and competing interests.
