Speaking to a local daily, Kenyatta noted that he would not be leaving anything to chance stating “If I say I am not, I would be accused of complacency.”

“Although I am confident, believe me, I am not complacent. I am an optimist by nature and I believe Kenya’s best days lie ahead,” the President was quoted by the Standard.

Kenyatta noted that Jubilee had transformed the country through infrastructural projects citing the Madaraka Express and creating jobs for the youth.

“Our transformation is all about improving the lives of all Kenyans. That is what a second term for me will deliver,” he said.

The president highlighted the achievements Jubilee had made hoping that he would use that to persuade the public as he seeks a second term in office.

“Over the next five years, we want to build on that foundation. We want to create more jobs for our young people. This means we should give them the right education and skills. This will take Kenya to the next level. That is why, from January 2018, secondary school education will be free,” Kenyatta stated.

NASA led by Odinga, have been campaigning across the country accusing Jubilee of corruption and failing to address the high cost of living which has made it difficult for common mwananchi to afford basic commodities.

The Opposition leader has also promised to lower the cost of living and make secondary education free if he is elected President.
