President Uhuru Kenyatta will meet all Mt Kenya leaders in Limuru next month, to give the vote-rich region a ‘political direction’ and tell them who his preferred successor was.

”The meeting was convened because of the unity of Mt Kenya which must happen. We also met to prepare for the larger meeting that we expect to hold soon and whose dates we will be announced,” he added.
Sources within the corridors power reveal President Uhuru has bestowed his trust upon the former Devolution CS to make the meeting a success and has been reaching out to him through Environment CS Keriako Tobiko, after he (Kiunjuri) was sacked from the cabinet.
Speaking after the meeting with a section of Mt Kenya leaders, Kiunjuri was adamant Mt Kenya parties will not fold to suit any politician’s presidential interests, and that they will remain plus work independently in 2022.
”We will not fold up our individual parties. Parties will remain independent but despite this, we must ensure there is the unity of our people,” the former CS added.
