Friday December 20, 2019 - President Uhuru Kenyatta will not leave his tribal leadership position even after completing his second term in 2022, Kirinyaga Governor Anne Waiguru has said.

The Head of State is set to retire in 2022 after the expiry of his second term. 

Constitutionally, he is ineligible to hold the Presidency.

However, in an interview with a local daily, Waiguru said Uhuru will only leave the political position which he holds as President.

According to her, the Head of State shall continue giving guidance in Mt. Kenya region as the de facto leader of Kikuyus.
"One of my views is that Uhuru Kenyatta is going to leave his political position but he will not leave the leadership position.”

“So there is no vacuum in leadership and that's the difference," she said.

"His term is coming to an end as the President but that does not mean that he will stop being a leader of the Mt Kenya region.”

“Raila Odinga is still the leader of his troops and does not have a political office.”

“So in my view, there is no vacuum in terms of kingship, so to speak."

There have been claims that Uhuru intends to use the Building Bridges Initiative report to sneak back as Prime Minister, claims which the President has often dismissed as street talk.
