Thursday September 5, 2019 - An outspoken Jubilee Party MP has said no presidential candidate in Kenya can win the Presidency without support from the Mt Kenya electorate.
In an interview with KTN on Wednesday evening, Nyeri Town MP, Ngunjiri Wambugu, said the biggest mistake NASA leader, Raila Odinga, has been making is to lie to himself that he can win the Presidency without Mt Kenya.
Raila has unsuccessfully vied for the Presidency five times, the latest being 2017 when he was thrashed by President Uhuru Kenyatta.
Ngunjiri said having been Raila Odinga’s Political Advisor, he learnt that no presidential candidate can go anywhere without being in good terms with Mt Kenya region.
“I was Raila Odinga’s political advisor in 2013.”
“The only one thing he had not understood is that you cannot wish away Kikuyus from national politics," Ngunjiri said.
The first time lawmaker concluded by saying that whoever wants to make any major political step in the country will have to reach out to the region or choose to fail like Raila Odinga.
“There is no way you can have a political conversation in this country without considering Mt Kenya," he said.
