President Uhuru Kenyatta has once again warned politicians against early 2022 campaigns, insisting that they will derail focus on the Big Four agenda and other kinds of development.

The President spoke in Nairobi's Molem estate on Saturday while inaugurating the revamped New KCC Dandora factory, a project that will increase milk production and create more jobs.

He said he will continue reviving factories and launching projects across the country as other leaders waste time politicking.

"We were in Eldoret and Nyahururu and are now in Nairobi for this project. We are doing this because of the unity we have achieved. People should focus on development, not sideshows."

At the event, Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko said the Tangatanga and Kieleweke political grouping are not welcome in Nairobi.

"We have no time for groups talking about 2022. All we want is development," he said.

YOUTHS' JOBS

The two leaders promised to channel more resources to improvement of city dwellers' livelihoods.

They noted the need to create more jobs, especially for youths.

"We know our youth are still facing challenges. That is why we have to work together by investing more in projects that will give us the opportunities we want," the President said.

Mr Kenyatta declared support for the governor in his efforts to create jobs for youths through projects.

He praised him for renovating markets and launching job creation initiatives in areas such as Dandora, which are perceived to be crime-hit.

"Such projects are important for young people like you," Mr Kenyatta said.

POTENTIAL

The factory is expected to create 400 jobs and produce 160,000 litres of milk per day.

However, Trade Cabinet Secretary Peter Munya said it has the potential to produce 300,000 litres per day.
