President Uhuru puts off key road project in Ukambani
He was expected to commission the construction of Kibwezi-Mutomo-Kitui road that links three counties in the Lower Eastern region.
The president also changed his plan to tour Makueni county on Monday, June 13, as he had to travel to Angola.
“Tomorrow (June 13), the President will be attending the 6th Ordinary Summit of the International Conference on The Great Lakes Region (ICGLR) which will be held in Luanda, Angola,” Esipisu said.

The meeting will focus on regional peace and security, economic integration, governance, humanitarian and environmental issues while providing a platform for Kenya to strengthen its relationship with the 12 countries included in the ICGLR.
Uhuru’s Ukambani tour that started on June 10 in Machakos, ended with an Inter-denominational church service in Kitui on Sunday, June 12.
