What Kiambu Leaders said at St. Andrew's Cathedral During Uhuru's Visit.

Sunday the 10th April was a very special day for Thika residents and the ACK congregation when they hosted President Uhuru Kenyatta for the Diocesan launch of their 5-year Strategic Plan.

Various political, religious and community leaders graced the occasion and made their own contributions.

When each was given an opportunity to 'say hi', they grabbed this rare chance to 'sell' their agenda and endear themselves to the people.

Thika Town MP Alice Ng'ang'a took the chance to sell her development agenda to her constituents. 

She talked of her endevour to ensure that every part of her constituency benefitted from water and electric power projects that were under the national government plan. 

"I am working very closely with CS Eugene Wamalwa to ensure that all my constituents benefit from his ministry's water projects. PS Njoroge has also assured me that the entire constituency will be connected to power by June this year," she said.

She castigated the opposition MPs for continuously criticising  the Jubilee Government for the sake of it.

"Please Mr. President, don't respond to these people when they grade your government's achievements. The reason they gave you a D+ was because they never heard your speech for they were busy blowing whistles," she said.

Kiambu Senator Kimani Wamatangi praised the government for the 1billion Madaraka Market and Thika water and drainage projects. He also said that both Ruiru and Juja towns were to benefit from a 2billion and 2.7billion sewerage systems respectively. He pleaded to the president to come and commission these projects since they fell under the national government.

Governor William Kabogo said that all the achievements by both the county and the national governments should be attributed to President Uhuru Kenyatta since it was under his leadership they they were able to succeed. 

He added that with the ICC cases gone, the president and his deputy now had a better opportunity to focus on national building.

Deputy Senate Speaker and Murang'a Senator Kembi Gitura called on unity of purpose saying that people had a chance to achieve great things if they worked together for the good of the nation.

He also invited the president to make a visit to Murang'a County.

Among the leaders who were present included CS Eugene Wamalwa, Nominated Senator Beatrice Alachi and Kiambu Women Rep. Ann Gathecha.
