President Uhuru Kenyatta has exuded confidence of winning the August 8th presidential election, saying he will defeat his 'clueless’ rival Raila Odinga. President Kenyatta said even when odds were against him in the 2013 general elections he trounced his competitors, adding it will be a smoother ride for him this year because he has a track record in the last four years.
The head of state was speaking when he presented Sh358 million for compensating IDPs in Kisii. He pledged another Sh470 million for Nyamira counterparts who were displaced during the 2007/2008 post-election violence.
“The Opposition has no idea what Kenyans want. If they are not inciting Kenyans, they are peddling insults. I will beat the clueless again” said President Kenyatta said. He further said that the opposition was hell bent on creating animosity and division among Kenyans and cannot read the mood of the country’s desire for peace.
“We have several reasons as to why we want you to support us on August 8th, one of them is to enable us continue with what we have been doing to improve the lives of all Kenyans...We have completed phase one of the Standard Gauge Railway from Mombasa to Nairobi, we will extend it to Naivasha. For the first time instead of passing through Nakuru, the Standard Gauge Railway will pass through Narok, Kisii and then to Kisumu,” said the President.
“There is no need of insulting one another, what is required is for leaders to propagate their party’s policies and Kenyans are wise enough to make independent decisions on what they want,” added the President.
