Uhuru's State House meeting with the MPs came just some few days to Madaraka Day celebrations expected to be held at Jomo Kenyatta Sports ground in Kisumu.
It was during the meeting that Uhuru is reported to have promised the Nyanza region a number of development goodies, including completing the already started projects which had stalled.
The head of state, according to the star newspaper, also promised the leaders that he, together with Raila Odinga, will ensure they leave legacy by creating jobs to the young Kenyans and ensuring all citizens access basic needs.
Speaking to the press after the meeting, MP James Nyikal said President Uhuru promised some goodies for the region among them, the construction of the Koru-Soin multi-purpose dam and the multi-million Mamboleo-Muhoroni road in Kisumu county.
It was revealed that Uhuru also promised to ensure that Lake Victoria Ring Road which connects Busia, Siaya, Kisumu, Homa Bay and Migori counties is going to be contructed and completed before he exits office.
"The issue of financing developments took centre stage. In short, we discussed matters of development. Uhuru and his brother Raila will speak on the other things discussed during the Madaraka Day celebrations," James Nyikal revealed.
The MP also disclosed that Uhuru talked about the BBI bill, and that he promised them that they are ensuring, together with Raila Odinga that all is on course, despite the ruling by the High Court.
