During a meeting that was held by various party leaders from the mount Kenya region, Gatundu mp Moses Kuria declared that he was in tangatanga and he was in full support of the Deputy President’s hustler narrative to the end.
Those in the meeting include the ambitions former MP for Gichugu and Narc Kenya party leader Martha Karua, The New Democrats Party Leader Thuo Mathenge,The Service Party (TSP) Party Leader Mwangi Kiunjuri among others.
The leaders accused and confronted Kuria over the his intentions to turn the unity meeting into a tangatanga affair with Dr Mathenge speaking out to the outspoken mp over those intentions.
Mount Kenya caucus
Moses Kuria and his counterparts Martha Karua and Mwangi Kiunjuri had last week come together to start a conversation an form a caucus on the unity of the Mount Kenya region in preparation for the 2022 general election. With most of the Mps from the region seemingly to support the DP it is a a bet on why this party leaders are meeting in a bid to enforce that they will be in the next government.
There has been fear and worry in the region since the break up in the jubilee party and the fact that president’s Uhuru term is coming to end and the region doesn’t have a strong leader who could be the voice of the region.
This has led to many leaders claiming to be the de facto leaders of the region with some including national assembly speaker Justin Muturi and the likes of Mwangi wa Iria the Murang’a county Governor.
While addressing the press after the meeting Narc- Kenya party leader martha karua indicated that the caucus main aim was to unite the region regardless of their political affiliations. she indicated that the mountain needed to speak in one voice and the caucus will help the community achieve that. she also indicate that she will be reaching out to all political leaders from the region be it from tangatanga faction or the kieleweke faction in a bid to foster unity among the region.
However , Mwangi Kiunjuri might have differed with her on the same issue about kieleweke indicating that those who are happy that the region is divided will not be welcome.
Kuria also hinted that those who are saying that they are selling the region to the highest bidder they should know that ” we can give out our 8 million votes to an outsider without knowing what were are gaining from that”. with this meeting seeming like a roll-coaster it is a wait and see if what transpired in 2013 will happen, like in the meeting where president Uhuru Kenyatta was clowned region leader by community leaders in what was dubbed Limuru 2, it seems like there will be a Limuru 3 with the way tings are going.
