However, the tour was cancelled at the last minute with the reports revealing that the head of state feared that his visit to the region could boost the spread of the covid-19 among the people due to overcrowding.
This has since led to mixed reactions from a number of Kenyans with others alleging that the planned tour could have been cancelled due to some other reasons, probably political, and not the Covid-19 pandemic.
According to the city senior counsel, Ahmednasir Abdullahi the president cancellation of the president's tour of the three regions was not in any way related to to the Covid-19 crisis.
Through his twitter handle the lawyer alleged that the tour was cancelled because the Wiper party leader, Hon. Kalonzo Musyoka was not a party to it and was probably against it.
"So why HE Uhuru's trip to Ukambani cancelled? Obviously it had nothing to do with covid-19 crisis. It had everything to do with Hon. Kalonzo Musyoka putting his foot down," he tweed.
