It has emerged that president Uhuru Kenyatta has through his top officials ordered backdating of completion of projects within his Mount Kenya region.
The Standard newspaper reports that the move is a kind gesture to the Mount Kenya region as the Head of State president Uhuru Kenyatta prepares to exit power this coming year.
"The projects whose completion dates have been revised backwards and a directive issued that they must be done by June next year are meant to be a befitting farewell gift by President Uhuru Kenyatta to his home region."the Standard newspaper reports.
This comes less than a year before the Head of State hands over the presidential instruments of power to his successor after having served his maximum ten years as the Head of State.
Among the areas of focus for the Head of State is the developmental projects among them roads in the area that has largely stood by him since his election.
It has already been revealed by the Cabinet Secretary in charge of roads, infrastructure, housing and urban development CS James Macharia that president Uhuru Kenyatta will be launching the projects himself upon their completion.
Among the projects that president Uhuru Kenyatta will be launching upon completion before the elections is the Multibillion Kenol to Marua dual carriageway that is under construction.
The Ministry has since ordered the engineers on the ground to divide the construction into two with one doing the Kenol to Sagana area and the other one handling Sagana to Marua area.
President Uhuru Kenyatta will also be launching other projects in the country before his exit from power.
