He also ordered increased security on the border of Trans Nzoia East and West Pokot districts. It being barely five months after the president split Trans-Nzoia District into Kitale West and Kitale East, Kwanza Distrct will now have its headquarters at Endebess, which was formerly a divisional centre.

He promised that the Government would look into the problems of an estimated 34,000 squatters in Saboti and Kwanza. 

“We are going to ensure that the security of Kwanza people is safeguarded by having more security personnel on the ground,” the President said.  He instucted Internal Security minister, Mr John Michuki to post a DC, vehicles and other necessary equipment to make the new district functional. “Kijana huyu John Michuki atatuma DC hii wiki ijayo. Kwa hivyo kazi iendelee”. He was on his second day of his three day campaign in the North Rift region.
