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.

Last month, Kenya's president directed those carrying out his famous coastal project to make sure they were on schedule before leaving office next August.Even though it was an official trip, it caused political unrest after the DP campaign in the area and at the same time as Odinga's trip. 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.

A week-long visit by the deputy President of Kenya, Dr. Ruto and Odinga, point out the importance of regions for succession policies until 2022.

Governors Hassan Joho (Mombasa), Amason Kingi (Kilifi) and Salim Mvuriya (Kvale), who are also serving their final terms, met with the Kenyan President for talks in which he brought them together behind his political goals.

In the past, governors, led by Kingi, have debated about the pressure on political attire in the region. The two managers were selected by ODM Ticket while Mr. Mvurya is the jubilee manager. At one point, Mr. Mvurya is seen approaching Dr. Ruto's camp moved.
