President Uhuru Kenyatta and Deputy president William Ruto are set to tour western Kenya next month only four days after Cord principal Raila Odinga five day visit to the area. They are expected to set up development projects and woo voters.

The president’s trip will certainly be used to counter Mr. Odinga in which he discredited the Jubilee administration. During his five day tour, Raila Odinga accused the Jubilee administration of neglecting the area, corruption and extrajudicial killings.

Water and irrigation Cabinet Secretary Eugene Wamalwa and Mumias East member of parliament Benjamin Washili said the president will launch development project in the water and education sectors.
