Nairobi Governor Johnson Sakaja and his Makueni counterpart Mutula Kilonzo Jnr have urged Kenyans to embrace national unity regardless of political affiliation.

Speaking during a funds drive in AIC Church, Ziwani, Nairobi on Sunday, the duo accompanied by Transport Cabinet Secretary Kipchumba Murkomen asked faithfuls to shun divisive politics.

“It is time for leaders to work together and to embrace each other, to embrace the Republic of Kenya,” said Sakaja.

The Nairobi governor said that all Kenya have the same shares in their country and there was no one who was lesser.

"We are all under President William Ruto who is keen to serve every Kenyan equally, we request him after he is done with Nyanza to visit Ukambani and any other region across the country and bring the country together," said Sakaja.

He assured the residents of Ziwani who live in county houses that they would not be evicted.

“If you have been living in our county houses and you have the book and are on our records…when we finish construction you will come back, the house is yours, all you will pay is service charge. We are looking at what you have been paying in the past as mortgage so it’s your house,” said Sakaja.

Murkomen implored the faithful to pray for the unity of the country.

The CS announced that the Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) system will soon start operations and will revolutionise public transport in Nairobi

“Plans are also underway to dual James Gichuru way to join Ngong road,” he said.

Makueni Governor Kilonzo Jnr asked the faithful to pray for peace in the country saying what is happening in Israel and Palestine should not happen anywhere else.
