As President Uhuru Kenyatta and other leaders marked the 10th Mashujaa Day in Mombasa County on Sunday, Ford Kenya leader Moses Wetang'ula called for the Jubilee administration to fulfill its promises to Kenyans.

Speaking in Kibra, Nairobi County, during campaigns for Ford Kenya candidate Butichi Khamisi, the party leader said the public will recognise the President as a champion only if he implements his whole agenda.

“Instead of launching new projects, President Kenyatta should use his remaining term to finish the projects he has started," he said.

"All over the country are stalled roads, dam, water and school projects. There is no need to use billions of shillings on new projects yet the ones already started have stalled."

KHAMISI'S PLEDGES

Mr Khamisi echoed Mr Wetang'ula's remarks and told the people that their contributions to the economy, however small, make them champions.

In the spirit of Mashujaa Day, he said, he will advance former MP Ken Okoth’s legacy by providing services without discrimination and fighting tribalism, which he noted is a big problem in Kibra.

“This is an issue we must be willing to talk about because it affects us all. I will ensure children and the youth in Kibra do not face discrimination because of the tribes or communities they belong to," he said.

"Bursaries and jobs will be given to those who deserve them and without discrimination."

UHURU'S SPEECH

Thousands of Kenyans turned up for the 10th Mashujaa Day celebrations which took place at the refurbished Mama Ngina Waterfront in Mombasa.
