Friday January 3, 2020 - The hunt for a political kingpin from Mt Kenya region before the retirement of President Uhuru Kenyatta has gained momentum.

A section of leaders from the region have endorsed Agriculture Cabinet Secretary, Mwangi Kiunjuri, as the right candidate to lead the region to prosperity.

The leaders have asked Kiunjuri to stand up and fight for the rights of communities in Central Kenya. 

They have appealed to him to ensure that the region is under one political party to increase their bargaining power if they decided to work with other communities as they plan on how to take over power. 
The leaders who have backed Kiunjuri hail from Nyandarau, Meru, and Laikipia.

Speaking during the burial of a kin to Kiunjuri's Personal Assistant in Ntugi, Meru County, on Tuesday, several leaders said that Kiunjuri is the right man for the job.

“We urge you to get ready and give us a political party with which we will bargain for power in 2022.”

“We need our own tent."

"We will judge you harshly if Mt Kenya region loses direction,” Laikipia Speaker, Patrick Waigwa, said. 

Kiunjuri is among a host of leaders from Mt. Kenya who have been fronted for the tough role currently occupied by Uhuru.
