Sunday May 5, 2019-There is a growing consensus among Mt. Kenya leaders for a Limuru conference to pick President Uhuru Kenyatta’s heir.
Agriculture Cabinet Secretary Mwangi Kiunjuri and Meru Governor Kiraitu Murungi set the ball rolling last week when they called for the conference. They were supported by several leaders.
Speaking last week, Kiunjuri said a time has come for members of Kiama kia Ma (Kikuyu elders), Njuri Ncheke (Meru elders), religious and political leaders to come together and set the post 2022 agenda for Mt. Kenya region.
“We cannot be naive and go to the elections as a divided community. Such a meeting should be held in 2021. For now, let us support the President’s Big Four Agenda,” Kiunjuri said.
Since 1966, Limuru town in Kiambu County has been the centre of regional politics.
The first conference came up with decisions to water down the powers of Vice President Jaramogi Oginga Odinga and his eventual removal from the ruling party, Kanu.
