President Uhuru Kenyatta is sure he will beat NASA chief Raila Odinga in Tuesday’s election urging Kambas to vote for him.
Uhuru and Deputy President William Ruto took their campaigns to Makueni county on Wednesday.
“We have come to ask for your votes but we are not forcing you to vote for us. You may vote for whoever you want but this time, I assure you, we will beat Raila…we will place him where he belongs,” he told a gathering at Wote town.
The President also threatened to take unspecified action against chiefs who do not support his government.
“Don’t think we don’t know what is happening in this area. We know what you are doing and we will deal with you after elections,” he said.
“You think it is the Opposition who is your employer…you have to understand that the motorcycles you are using were provided by Jubilee.”
On July 21, Kilfii Governor Amason Kingi accused the government of threatening chiefs and village elders so they can campaign for Jubilee.
Kingi said he has reports the administrators have been ordered to campaign for the ruling coalition days to the general election.
Uhuru further said he is not worried about Raila’s insults so he will carry on with his regular duties.
Noting his administration’s commitment to constructing the proposed Thwake Dam, he assured residents the project will kick off soon after the compensation process.
Uhuru and Ruto used the opportunity to campaign for Jubilee candidates in the county.
Present were Makueni governor aspirant Gideon Ndambuki, Peter Maundu (Senator), Peter Kiilu (Makueni MP), Katemi Makenga (Kaiti MP) and Regina Ndambuki (Kilome MP).
Uhuru and Ruto toured with Health Cabinet Secretary Cleopa Mailu.
