President Uhuru Kenyatta is set to make history as the first President of Kenya to rule the country from outside Nairobi after it emerged that the Head of State has set out to govern the country from other Counties apart from Nairobi for 9 good months.
According to the Head of State’s diary, he will shift operations from State House, Nairobi, to regional State Lodges for the next few months beginning with the Coast where he has been for the last four weeks.
The move is part of Uhuru’s strategy to consolidate his voting blocs as well as endear himself to former Prime Minister Raila Odinga’s strongholds ahead of the 2017 General Elections.
During this time, Uhuru is set to interact with opinion leaders from all regions at the grassroots as he lures them to join Jubilee through some unsettled development projects.
After the Coast where he has been since December last year, Uhuru is set to move to Mt. Kenya region in February and operate from Sagana State Lodge.
From Mt. Kenya, the President will shift base to Nakuru and will operate from Nakuru State House to cover the entire Rift Valley. He is expected to spend over two months in Nakuru due to the vastness of the Rift Valley.
From Nakuru, Uhuru will be headed to Western Kenya. While there, he will operate from Kisumu State House to cover Western and Nyanza regions.
Jubilee is banking on Uhuru’s new strategy to shift the political ground in their favour by completely throwing Raila Odinga off balance on the ground.
