MURATHE is on his own as Mt. Kenya elders disown him for rattling RUTO over his 2022 bid-Say he does not represent Kikuyus

Friday January 11, 2019-Elders from Mt. Kenya have prevailed upon their leaders to conduct themselves in line with the community's ordinances.

This follows the recent outburst by some Mt. Kenya MPs directed at President Uhuru Kenyatta, accusing him of neglecting the region in terms of development.

The elders warned leaders to respect the President as he is the symbol of national unity.

"Leaders and all Kenyans need to respect the presidency which is inclusive of Deputy President William Ruto.”

“They should desist from uttering words in bad taste to undermine Presidency," said Dominic Mbatia, an elder.

"The President's job is to impose national values and politicians have obligations to respect institutions.”

“The President is a symbol of national unity and leaders need to provide him with and his Deputy environment to work well," he added.

At the same time, the elders distanced themselves from resigned Jubilee party Vice Chairperson, David Murathe, that Uhuru had no pact with Ruto to support the latter's presidential ambition in 2022.

"Murathe is entitled to his own opinion and we respect his views.”

“However, what he said was just that, his personal opinion not community's position," he said.
