Deputy President William Ruto has continued with the Jubilee party’s onslaught in the regions considered as opposition strongholds, this time touring Migori County to woo residents to rally behind President Uhuru Kenyatta in the August 8 elections.
Ruto on Friday toured Migori to woo the Kuria community to support the Jubilee government. He asked Kurias not to gamble this time round by voting for the opposition, adding that Jubilee has a convincing rack record in development.
“This is why we want to plead with the people of Migori to make the right choices and vote for Jubilee come August,” he said.
Speaking at Mabera grounds in Kuria West Constituency, Migori County, Ruto further said that the government will start offering free secondary school education from January 2018 to reduce the dropout rates and increase enrollment in secondary schools.
“From January next year, secondary school education will be free in public schools if you give us another chance,” he added.
He promised residents that the current high prices of essential commodities will reduce in coming weeks saying that the government is putting measures to avert the situation. “As government, we are doing our best to solve the problem within the shortest time possible. Our colleagues in the Opposition are opportunists who take advantage of such situations to mislead Kenyans that they have solutions to such problems,” said Ruto.
He later commissioned the construction of Motemorabu-Masaba road to bitumen standard, which is expected to open up the region to boost transport and business.
The Deputy President was accompanied by MPs Mathias Robi (Kuria West), Mary Emase (Teso South) and Rachel Shebesh (Woman Rep, Nairobi).
