As October 26th voting day is fast closing in, President Uhuru on Thursday took his campaigns to Kisii region in bid to bolster his vote basket.
Addressing a series of rallies in Kisii county, the President sought to use the appointment of their son Fred Matiangi, who doubles up as Education and Interior Cabinet Secretary, arguing that he is third in rank after him and his deputy William Ruto.
"Nawaomba mkubali tutembee pamoja...mimi nawaomba kura...wale wenzetu wanazunguka wakisema Jubilee haileti watu pamoja...msidanganywe (I am asking you to walk with me...I am asking you for votes...our rivals says Jubilee does not unite people...do not be deceived)," he said.
"Ni wakisii wangapi mnaona huko NASA? Ni swali ya haki...upande wetu....ukiangalia serikali yetu, Ruto akiwa deputy, halafu nani anasimamia usalama? Nani anasimami elimu? Ni mkikuyu na mkalenjini (How many Kisiis are in NASA? It is a question of rights...when you look at our government, Ruto is the DP...who is in charge of security? Who is in charge of education? Is it a Kikuyu or a Kalenjin)?"
Uhuru also pointed out to another of their son Mohamed Nyaoga, the chairman of Central Bank of Kenya.
"Si ni mtoto wenu? Mnaweza sema eti wakisii wamefungiwa nje kweli? Tutembee pamoja wenzetu (Isn't he your child? Can you really say you have been locked out? Let us walk together)."
President Uhuru garnered significant numbers in the nullified August 8th election in Kisii and Nyamira counties, getting 48 percent and 52 percent of votes cast in the two counties respectively.
