We’ve delivered more development in Coast than any other previous Govt, says President Kenyatta President Uhuru Kenyatta said the Jubilee Administration has delivered more development in the Coast region than any other previous regime, citing the expansion of the port of Mombasa that is aimed at making it a net exporter of goods manufactured in the country as an example.
