President Kibaki on Friday campaigned for his re-election in Kiambu with a call to residents turn out in large numbers and vote on December 27. The tour took him to Kikuyu, Kimende, Limuru, Githunguri, Gatundu and Thika. “We should come out in large numbers and vote on the day of the elections. The exercise will only take a short time but we must vote to ensure the good work that we have started continues,” he said at every stop-over.

He promised the people that he would declare where the money for the programme would be obtained in January

Kibaki further assured the Kenyans that the introduction of the free secondary education would not lead to increased taxation.

He advised women and youths to apply for enterprise funds which would be repaid at five per cent interest.At Githunguri, the President asked voters to make their own decision on which leaders they thought was best to serve them in his next government. He told on residents to allow even those who did not want to acknowledge his development record to sell their policies freely.
