President Uhuru Kenyatta on Saturday conducted another restricted tour of the Kisumu Port, with members of the public kept at bay.
The Head of State landed at the Kisumu International Airport at about 2pm and was received by Cabinet secretaries James Macharia (Transport), Raychelle Omamo (Defence) and George Magoha (Education).
He had a brief meeting with the government officials at the airport before he was driven in a vehicle with civilian number plates to the port.
About 10 other vehicles were in the convoy.
The President’s lean motorcade took the Busia-Kisumu highway to the port, through Obote Road and Oginga Odinga Street, while other motorists drove on interrupted.
Only a handful of onlookers were pictured on Oginga Odinga Road, trying to catch a glimpse of the dignitary who had visited.
Mr Kenyatta, who flew directly to the lakeside city from a two-day private visit to Tanzania, was driven directly to the Kisumu Pier which is being rehabilitated.
From a distance, the media initially captured the guided tour as the President assessed the work that began in May.
His visits to the port and the Kenya Marine Institute lasted about two hours. He later visited the dry dock where MV Uhuru has docked.
