It also comes on the backdrop of increased campaigns by Tangatanga MPs in support of Deputy President William Ruto’s 2022 bid, while a dissenting team dubbed Kieleweke has been vocal in supporting Uhuru’s handshake with Opposition leader Raila Odinga.
The Jubilee Party has been pulling in different directions since the handshake.
A planned visit by Uhuru and Raila to popularise the Building Bridges Initiative has been pending, with no date given.
During his previous visit, the President lauded local leaders for being united and keen on development projects.
The President, accompanied by the leaders, laid the foundation stone for construction of an airport terminal at Nyaribo Airstrip, which was to allow commercial flights to and from Nairobi.
While the President also promised to return for the official opening of Othaya National Referral Hospital, to date the facility which cost over Sh1 billion to construct is yet to be commissioned.
