Preparations to host President Kenyatta are ongoing as major city roads and pavements are being repaired while some buildings are being repainted.

The government had said that it would spend Sh3.9 billion to pilot the programme in Kisumu, Nyeri, Isiolo and Machakos counties.

The visit to Kisumu will be President Kenyatta's first since last year’s divisive General Election that was marred with violence his controversial win.

It will also be Uhuru’s first visit since the historic handshake between the Head of State and Raila, which ended the political standoff.

During the March 9 handshake, Uhuru and Raila vowed to work together and promised to tour the whole country, together, to preach peace.
