While speaking at Chepsir Primary School in Kipkelion East, Kericho County, the Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua said that the goverment will focus on improving the lives of Kenyans and will not be distracted by those keen to disrupt the government.
The DP said President William Ruto had laid down an extensive plan to develop the country and wouldn’t lose sight of what he intends to do for the country. He said the opposers should give him time to deliver his work. However he promised that the goverment won’t be shaken by the ongoing deonstrations.
The Deputy President added that former President Uhuru Kenyatta should be allowed to conduct peace missions in Africa as he has been chosen by President Ruto, free from interference from regional politics.
The DP said improving agricultural productivity in the area was a high priority while on a development tour of the county.
He reassured locals that efforts to increase profits from dairy, potato, coffee, and tea cultivation were on track.
The DP made stops at numerous locations while on the tour and reaffirmed the administration’s commitment to advancing the nation.
At the National Cereals and Produce Board’s Kedowa Depot in Kipkelion, where he presided over the distribution of subsidised fertilizer to farmers, the DP stated that the main goal was to put bags of fertilizer at the doorsteps of the farmers in advance of the anticipated rain and the ensuing planting season.
The National Government/CDF offices in Londiani town were also officially opened by the Deputy President. He called on the legislators to ensure careful and equitable distribution of the monies, particularly for low-income families, while recognizing the enormously beneficial transformation that the NG/CDF had brought to the people of Kenya since its founding.
He reaffirmed his resolve to plant and nurture more than 15 billion trees by 2032 at Londiani Forest College, where he also dedicated the Londiani Forestry College Borehole.
He stated that their goal was to raise the forest cover in order to combat climate change and regain more hospitable weather patterns, including predictable rainy seasons.
Gachagua also urged assistant chiefs, chiefs, and other county-based national government administration authorities to step up efforts to put an end to the illegal brew that has been destroying youth.
He urged the teenagers of Kipkelion to cease drinking the brew for the sake of their health.
