Ahead of President William Ruto's planned two-day visit to the Nyanza region, locals have been advised on how they should welcome the head of the state.

According to State House Spokesperson Hussein Mohamed, President Ruto is set for a two-day working tour of the Nyanza region that kicks off tomorrow, 13 January 2023.

In a statement sent to media houses, Hussein said President Ruto's tour will cover Kisumu, Homa Bay and Siaya Counties.

ODM MP Caleb Amisi has since advised the people of the Nyanza region to come out in great numbers and offer the President a warm welcome.

Taking to social media today, the youthful MP said the residents should offer the President a mammoth crowd, adding that Ruto is, and remains their President at least until 2027.

More so, Amisi also informed the Nyanzan people that even though they did not vote for President Ruto as other regions did, that does not mean the President is going to leave them behind in terms of development.

"Dear Nyanza people, Tomorrow @WilliamsRuto is visiting. Accord him the biggest mammoth crowd ever witnessed since the death of Idd Amin Dada. He is our President until 2027. Besides, voting patterns and the development of a nation are NOT Siemese twins," he sent the advice.

Several other leaders have also urged the Nyanza residents to welcome the President with open arms. Former Nairobi governor Evans Kidero also urged the people to come out in large numbers and welcome the President.

ICT Cabinet Secretary Eliud Owalo erected huge billboards in the town to welcome the President in Nyanza.

Ruto is set to launch several projects, including an affordable housing project in Homa Bay County. The government is targeting to build at least 5000 units in the county.

He will also meet the leaders from the region.
