Residents of Kisumu county on Thursday showed love for President Uhuru Kenyatta and he loved them right back.

Kenyatta, who was accompanied by ODM leader Raila Odinga in his Kisumu tour, shared his plans at the podium leaving those in attendance rolling with laughter.

“Sijui kama mama nyumbani ataniruhusu…akiniruhusu labda naweza kupata mtu wa kuwa ananitengenezea mambo yangu pande hii…ndio tuwe tunatembea ukijua kuna pahali utakula ugali.”

(Translation: I don’t know if my wife at home will permit me….if she does maybe I can get someone to take care of me these sides …so that when we visit we know we have somewhere to eat some ugali.)

He was accompanied by Odinga and a host of Cabinet Secretaries as they drummed up support for the BBI report which they received on Wednesday in Kisii county.

Mr Kenyatta received a grand welcome in the lakeside city of Kisumu as residents sang and danced along the roads upon his arrival.

He danced away to the famous ‘Jerusalema’ song by Master KG featuring Nomcebo and Lucky Dube’s ‘Nobody Can Stop Reggae’ as the crowds cheered.

Donning a blue shirt and cream trouser, the head of state showed off his moves joined by Odinga, Kisumu governor Anyang’ Nyong’o among others at Kondele and the Kisumu Showground during the groundbreaking of the Jomo Kenyatta International Stadium at the Mamboleo ASK Grounds.
