President Uhuru Kenyatta is on the waterfront for a three-day tour to outsource his legacy project and meet local leaders.The visit sparked political interest given the intensive campaign in the region led by DP William Ruto and ODM Leader Rila Odinga.
He arrived in Mombasa on Tuesday after DP Ruto left the coast, who had set up camp there since Thursday and met in the districts of Mombasa, Kilifi and Kwala. Mr Odinga landed there on Saturday and gave a speech at meetings in Mombasa, Kwali, Kilifi, Sungai Tana and Lamu.
The Kenyan president is expected to lead military service in Magogoni, Lamu County. He will also meet with local guides and then travel to Kilifi District to assign projects.Tomorrow he will meet with executives from six districts in Mombasa to update the progress of his legacy project in the area. It was not immediately clear whether the President would cooperate with Odinga.

However, Mvita MP Abdul Nasir said the president's visit to Kenya had been planned for a long time.
“We will meet him as a group at the beach on Thursday. Incidentally, our party leader Odinga is also here," said Nasir.
