Sagana 3 meeting
President Uhuru Kenyatta was the first speaker at the Sagana 3 meeting, which drew over 10,000 people from Nyeri’s vote-rich County.
Health Minister Mutahi Kagwe welcomed the Head of State to the meeting.
The meeting’s agenda, according to the president, who wished to speak in his Kikuyu dialect, was to discuss the Kikuyu Community’s concerns, current situation, and future.
President Uhuru sought to display the Jubilee Party projects that had been keeping him busy before to his official speech.
“A lot has been said but I kept mum,” he said.
“We have come here (Sagana) because we love peace and the country. My happiness is that, as I was here before, we were not as many… I don’t know what you people want me to tell you, but we came here and discussed our issues.”
“Now we meet again and ask ourselves where we have come from, where we are headed, what we have done, and what we would want to be done.”
“Let me tell you, a lot has been said and I always keep quiet. People come here to tell you how much they love you. I don’t know, but we will see soon.”
“I won’t speak about other people, but I want people to make a choice based on the truth, not lies.”
“I want to show everyone, especially those I hear speaking about the death of our party, where it has been and what it has been doing,” he added.
Among the projects displayed are road tamaracks, energy projects, hospitals, among others.
The Head of State maintained that no other politician will be allowed to make speeches, upholding that Sagana 3 was his meeting, which he intends to use to speak to residents from the region.
“This is my meeting and it is my day so I don’t want other people to say I didn’t allow them to speak.”
