Deputy President William Ruto on Thursday once again was in West Pokot County in a bid to consolidate the about 180, 000 votes ahead of the repeat polls set for Oct 17.
Speaking in Chepareria, Deputy President William Ruto pledged that the Jubilee Government will build the Makutano-Alale Road, a promise they had made before the August polls. He also said that the Kitale-Lodwar Highway would be build afresh to ease transport which has been a major challenge for the past years, adding that they will work with the governor to construct and operationalize two industries within the county that will see about 2000 youths get employed.


“We want West Pokot to change. That change will only come by empowering the people of this county with better infrastructure and an enabling environment. Within the next five years, the work of building the Kacheliba Road will be over.”
He also emphasized that the government will work closely with the Governor Prof John Lonyangapuo, as he is the peoples’ choice, “We respect the choice of the people of West Pokot and as such, I want to assure you all here today that we are going to work with Prof.”
He later on asked the area MP David Pkosing and a delegation from Chepareria Mixed Secondary School to meet him in a weeks’ time to acquire a bus for the school following a request made by the students.
On his part, the area Governor Prof John Lonyangapuo asked The Deputy President and the entire Jubilee administration to put the interests of all Pokots from every corner of this nation first.
He said that for a long time, the Pokot community has been side-lined and it is about time that they also benefit as a community,” Pokots from Uganda to Laikipia are one. They must be treated as so.


He said this in reference to operations that have been carried out to curb the culture of cattle rustling. While acknowledging that cattle rustling is retrogressive, he however pointed out that such operations need to be carried out in a humane manner.
“Our people have lost their cattle and belongings. We are asking the government to refund this loss.”
His sentiments were echoed by the area senator Samwel Poghisio who said that as much as KANU as a party is backing up President Kenyatta’s re-election, the interest of the residents of West Pokot county must not be forgotten.

 

MPs Samwel Moroto, Mark Lomunokol, David Pkosing and Peter Lochakapong urged the Pokot residents to vote for the re-election of President Kenyatta, arguing that the community had much to benefit from the Jubilee Government.
