Nyandarua Governor Francis Kimemia on Wednesday stood firm to defend President Uhuru Kenyatta over what a section of leaders from Central Kenya have blamed his administration for limited developments.
Kimemia said that President Kenyatta has been working closely with all the governors across the country in matters development.
"All 47 counties have their own individual development programmes running up to 2022 and beyond."
He called upon leaders to respect the President and give him enough time to roll out his agenda, including the big four.
"Leaders making malicious statements on state of inequitable development must understand that you cannot deliver a five-year project in a span of one-year and therefore its abnormal for a section of leaders to mislead the population," said Kimemia.
The Governor added that the Jubilee administration must be seen to ensure equitable development across the country.
He said that leaders from the region have various projects aligned until 2022 which are supported by the national government, therefore, as governors they have have no time to discuss 2022 succession politics.
"As elected leaders from central region, we have a clear roadmap of various projects being undertaken with support of the national government while focusing on Big Four agenda."
A section of leaders fro the region led by Gatundu South MP Moses Kuria have accused President Uhuru Kenyatta saying he has neglected the region in terms of development.
However, President Uhuru Kenyatta told them off challenging them to forget 2022 politics and focus on serving their employers (citizens).
Uhuru said his administration focus at developing the entire country and ensuring unity among Kenyans.
