President Uhuru Kenyatta has cancelled his planned two-day tour of Ukambani region over fears the visit may trigger a spread of Covid-19.
The President was to visit the region on Tuesday.
Uhuru had visited Kitui on June 25 for the official launch of the Marian Shrine of Our Lady of Protection in Museve.
He had met Ukambani leaders in mid June.
In the two-day development tour, the Head of State was expected to visit Machakos and Makueni counties.
In Makueni, the President would begin his tour at the Konza Technopolis in Makueni before proceeding to inspect the Thwake Dam project and later launch Kibwezi-Kitui road.
Uhuru would then inspect ongoing government projects and launch new ones in a bid to pacify the region.
