NAIROBI, Kenya. The campaigns are officially over, but the last lap of the Kenyan campaigns left many politicians leaving no stone unturned.

With just hours left for the Kenyans to go into milestone polls, several politicians among the over 50,000 due for elections braced themselves with hefty promises to the electorate.

As President Uhuru Kenyatta and his deputy William Ruto spent their Sunday in prayers with family members at Umoja church in Nairobi with NASA leader Raila Odinga having a cool moment with his grandchildren enjoying ice-cream in a posh Hub in Karen, an upscale suburb in Kenyan capital, Nairobi, Bungoma County Member of Parliament Reginalda N. Wanyonyi took advantage of the Ugandan’s entrepreneur to seek for votes in Bungoma.

The Ugandan investor, Harrison Busingye, a leading South African based expert in Interlocking Stablizing Blocks (ISSB) Technology , was a revelation that no matter however a great messiah, a man never become a hero where he is born. The Investigator while fishing around the Kenyan territories discovered the great countrywide community projects in the Republic of Kenya that the politicians are using to woe voters for votes ahead of tomorrow (August 8th general elections).

The Investigator established from Mangadeline Kepkemei, the Chief Executive Officer of the Kenya’s National Government Affirmative Action Fund (NGAAF), The equivalent of the Uganda’s Youth Livelihood Fund under Pius Bigirimana, that the technology that was established in Uganda in 1996 was transforming the Kenyan communities.

“We are glad that Ugandan engineer, Harrison Busingye is helping the Kenyan Government transform lives of thousands of Kenyans in the 47 counties that I head in Kenya. The ISSB technology has been instrumental in job creations, skills development and community up-scaling in major counties in Kenya,’ said Kepkemie at the commissioning of the ISSB technology at Botobo Secondary school in Bungoma county at the weekend.

The area legislator, Reginalda Wanyonyi, who is seeking re-election urged the locals in Bungoma to embrace the technology that she described as very gainful to the community.

What is mind boggling is that unlike Kenya that is embracing the ISSB technology, billions of shillings injected by government of Uganda under the Northern Uganda Rehabilitation Program (NURP) lays in waste in most northern Uganda districts.

Candidates Call for peace
The Kenyan campaigns that kicked off on May 8 and was characterized by emotions and name-calling ended with both camp leaders, Jubilee’s Uhuru Kenyatta and National Super Alliance (NASA’s) Raila Odinga calling for peace after elections.

Kenya’s Deputy President Ruto said on Sunday: “Kenya would emerge the winner in Tuesday’s General Election. We want to ask countrymen to pray for Kenya on Tuesday so that we silence every rumour, arrest the tongue of every lie and confusion, so that Kenyans can have a peaceful election.,”

NASA’s Raila Odinga, who spent time on Sunday enjoying ice cream with grandchildren and mingling with the supermarket staff said; “I decided to bring my grandchildren to the Hub and buy them ice-cream and hamburgers after having prayers with pastors at home.”
