Youths and Gender CS Sicily Kariuki on Saturday campaigned for President Uhuru Kenyatta’s reelection at night in Embu, despite the opposition’s complaints against the minister. Kariuki, who comes from Embu, opened a street lighting project in Manyatta town at around 8pm, where she urged residents to support Uhuru and Deputy President William Ruto. She said the duo have fulfilled their electoral pledges.

The CS told locals Jubilee has uplifted their standard of living through the last mile electricity connectivity project, which will allow them to operate their business 24/7. Kariuki urged them to ignore the opposition, alleging its leaders are only good at inciting the people and spreading propaganda.

Kariuki was accompanied by, among others, Embu woman representative Rose Mitaru, Manyatta MP John Muchiri, Kenya Forest Service director Emilio Mugo, Maendeleo Chap Chap Manyatta MP candidate John Gitonga, and Kenya Power Company senior officials. The candidates promised to conduct a peaceful election.
