MP Wahome upbeat as Kandara hosts Uhuru today
Kandara MP Alice Wahome has welcomed President Uhuru Kenyatta on his anticipated visit to the area today.
The President is set to grace the Holy Oil celebration an occasion to be conducted by the African Independent Pentecostal Churches of Africa in Gakarara, Kandara.
Wahome downplayed reports that there are plans to have the president heckled by the crowds saying they are unfounded and not true.
She said she will be there personally to receive Uhuru and play his host for the day adding that it shall also be a great moment for Kandara people.
Addressing the media at her backyard, the MP claimed that there are few elements who have been feeding the president with wrong information that he shall be heckled saying this was wrong.
Nothing left to chance
Wahome however said the security agents must ensure all parameters have been checked and nothing has been left to chance.
“This will be a church event which thousands of people will be in attendance and I don’t think we can afford to play politics here” she said.
“The last time the president visited Kandara was on December 29, 2019 during the funeral ceremony of the late Charles Rubia,” she said.
She said deputy president William Ruto who had also been invited for the same event might not turn up pointing out this will be to avoid creating political tension.
The MP said she shall be seeking to engage the president on various projects which he promised to the residents but they have never been implemented.
Among them are the Sh500 million Bildad Kagia hospital, a medical training institute and several roads which he had promised during the visit. Wahome who has been a critic of the president over his leadership and governance said there is no bad blood between them.
