Uhuru Makes Surprise Visit To Kisumu

President Uhuru Kenyatta made an impromptu visit to Kisumu city on Wednesday, January 12, taking its residents off guard.

Media reports indicate that Uhuru is heading to Mbita, Homa Bay County via the Kisumu bound Train.

Movement in and out of the port of Kisumu was ground to a halt at 2.30 pm when the president landed aboard a military chopper.

Security officers kept guard at the port as details were unclear who had accompanied him to the lakeside city.

The President is reported to be carrying out inspections in the port that lasted three hours as its rehabilitation seeks to restore it to its former glory.

The port has been undergoing upgrades since 2016 and once complete will create a one-of-a-kind transport system serving East and Central Africa.

Uhuru was last in Kisumu on June 1, 2021 for the 58th Madaraka Day celebrations at the Jomo Kenyatta Stadium.

It was there that during his speech, he praised the independence heroes for their unwavering sacrifice for us to live free from British colonial rule.

“Today we celebrate our war heroes who gave their all including their lives for us to live free. They sacrificed their freedoms and lives knowing fully well that sometimes those who sow fruits of freedom may never enjoy the fruits that follow,” the President spoke.
