We went to the people, we asked for their votes and sold our plan to them, its now for us to implement that plan. We will leave Naivasha with everybody reading from the same page in terms of even the legislative proposals that will be coming before parliament, Ichungwa said.

The President is intent on hitting the ground running and being able to deliver on all his promises and pledges to the people of Kenya, he added.

I want to believe that having played a pivotal role in the drafting of our plan and the many economic plan forums that I attended across the country I am well placed to articulate those issues with my colleagues on the floor of the House and I am praying that my colleagues will agree with me and find it befitting to bestow me that honor to lead them as the leader of majority, Ichungwa added.
