President Uhuru Kenyatta has urged Kenyans to be careful with the leaders they choose, noting that they should not elect people traversing the country making false promises.

Speaking in Maralal, Samburu County, the President noted that there are ‘thieves’ masquerading as leaders, and Kenyans should be wary of them.

“I have been commissioning water, roads, electricity, and other projects. Some have been coming here with sweet words, asking you to vote for them. Be careful because they will even snatch your wives. Do not entertain them,” the Head of State opined.

“My aim is to serve you. We are bringing clean water to Maralal, electricity, and even tackling insecurity in Samburu County. Those who want to lead you in future should stop bothering me,” he added.


Regarding the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI), the President thanked the Samburu County Assembly for passing the Bill, adding that it is meant to improve the lives of Kenyans and not benefit him politically.

According to the Head of State, pastoralist communities will be some of the major beneficiaries of the BBI Bill once it is passed during the referendum set for later this year.
