NAIROBI, Kenya, May 26th – Part of the leaders of the mountain. The Kenya region is expected to hold a meeting in Nyeri to show the way for next year’s general election.
The leaders among them were governors, MPs and ex-politicians from Mt. The Kenya region made the announcement on Wednesday after a meeting in Nairobi.
Their meeting follows the coronation of National Assembly Speaker Justin Muturi as spokesman for the region, which has created great divisions in the troubled mountain, whose chairman President Uhuru Kenyatta will retire next year at the end of his second and final term.
“In two weeks we will have the meeting in Nyeri and it will bring together elected leaders, former leaders, religious leaders and other leaders who are important to the formation of public opinion in the area,” said Lee Kinyanjui, the governor of Nakuru, during a joint press conference with others.
Kirinyanga’s Governors Anne Waiguru and Mutahi Kahiga of Nyeri said they would continue to hold a series of meetings with other leaders to speak with one voice.
“Soon we’ll have common ground to make sure we have unity because our numbers matter,” Waiguru said. “This is a very important time in our country and as a people we need to focus and speak with one voice.”
Some guides from the mountain. The Kenyan region, including Muranga’s Governor Mwangi Wa Iria and Gatundu South legislature Moses Kuria, have dismissed Muturi’s coronation as the region’s spokesman.
Governor Waiguru took the speaker’s coronation with him, saying it had little political significance.
She said the spokesman must be on the ground with other leaders aspiring to leadership positions in the region or elsewhere, and seek voices from the people who are the legitimate determinants of leadership.
“While Spokesman Muturi and others cannot wish for some form of enthronement, such enthronement without consultation and consensus with the leaders and the people of Mount Kenya has little political significance,” said Waiguru.
