The First Lady, Mama Rachel Ruto, has urged leaders to support the actualization of the projects envisaged in the Bottom-Up Economic Transformation Agenda by the Government.
The First Lady was speaking in Nairobi during the 70th birthday celebrations for Bishop DR. JB Masinde, the founder and senior pastor of Deliverance Church International, Umoja.
Mama Rachel Ruto singled out a multistorey residential housing development that will be built on Kangundo Road by Deliverance Church Umoja, charging other leaders present to identify similar potential projects alongside the priority areas of agriculture, MSME housing and settlement, manufacturing, the digital superhighway and creative economy, the service economy, and environment and climate change.
"I want to encourage the church to walk with the Government. Let's continue praying for our President, his deputy and other leaders in the country," the First Lady said.
She further expressed optimism for the nation's full economic recovery from the effects of the prolonged drought that was the worst in 40 years, with some areas missing rainfall for more than five consecutive years.
Other leaders present included Johnson Sakaja, Governor of Nairobi County; Njoroge Muchiri, Deputy Governor of Nairobi County; Dorcas Rigathi, Spouse to the Deputy President; Rigathi Gachagua; and Embakasi West Member of Parliament Mark Mwenje.
